Maori and Samoan Design Resource Kits: Ideas for Use

Pre-Literacy Skills/Colouring -in:
Exercising fine-motor skills for holding a pencil; manipulating writing materials; following and drawing within lines; building the foundations for eye-tracking, hand-eye co-ordination which are essentials for reading.

Visual Art:
Exploring design elements in the Pacific, where they come from and how they have developed within the NZ setting; playing with colour, (complementary / hues / monochrome); creating the 'stained-glass-window' look (using Maori and Samoan design); learning how to discern, participate in, and celebrate their own and others’ visual worlds; learning begins with children’s curiosity and delight in their senses and stories and extends to communication of complex ideas and concepts.

Looking at different cultures and how they communicate visually; learning about society and communities and how they function; learning about the diverse cultures and identities of people within those communities through their designs, artwork and crafts.
