Eyes of the magical Ariki

Whainga Ako: Listen to the matariki story on YouTube then, then add our own pictures to the story, and write the story into a google slides presentation.

What did you find challenging? : Drawing the pictures, took around 10-20 minutes, and it was the most challenging part of the mahi.

What does your digital item represent? : My full google slides presentation, that includes the entire story of the Eyes of Ariki, remade by me.

What did you do to learn it? I replayed the YouTube video many times, to get the words correct, I also looked at the pictures several times to get it correct.

What might you do differently next time? : Use poly-lines instead of normal lines, because you can't change the lines fill colour, also change the shape of Ranginui and Papatuanuku.

What was the best part? : Starting the matariki story definitely, I love starting new things.
Why did you do this? :  It was the matariki unit, for five weeks, so we had to do matariki mahi.

Whainga Ako (Mindful colouring): I am putting colour in, NOT colouring in, we were allowed to use only four colours, into the magical picture.

Whainga Ako (Dot to Dot): Use a ruler and a pencil, in famous structures and celebrities, rebuilding or remaking, their face or building, and we also joined the dots, by numbers using a Ruler.

What did you find challenging (MFC) : Looking for a good place to put colour in, you CAN'T use the colour randomly and scribble.

What did you find challenging (D2D) : Looking for the numbers, sometimes the numbers in the dot to dot was poorly placed, you'd have to look further out into the building.

What have you been learning? (MFC) : I have been learning to putting colour into a picture of a forest or a castle, putting little parts of colours can make a massive difference.

What have you been learning? (D2D) : I have been learning to use my ruler properly, and learning different facts, about the building.

What does your digital item represent? (MFC & D2D) : It represents my work, when I collaborated with Chili, we did Mindful colouring and Dot to Dot.

What did you do to master it? (MFC) : By viewing and examining, the examples in the Mindful colouring pukapuka.

What did you do to master it? (D2D) : By listening to the teacher, and following her instructions, and having past experience with doing Dot to Dot.

What was your favourite part? (MFC) : After fifteen minutes, we got to view the classes work, sometimes people just focused on two of their favourite colours.

What was your favourite part? (D2D) : Competition, Me and my friends would usually, just say the number we were on, then see who would be first.

Why did you do this? (D2D & MFC) : It was for a treat, for working so well, in Diary Writing, this was our Art and Pangarau.
