Maori Facts

Fact 1. Maori houses are mostly made of hay and bit of wood.

Fact 2. Maori houses can't keep the wind out and heat in for that long.

Those were my 2 facts about my house and the houses back in the day.

  1. Hi Madison,

    Ruby here from the Summer Learning Journey team! It's great to see that you've been working on some of these activities. Keep it up! :)

    These are great facts. There are a lot of differences between our houses today and the wharepuni houses that the original Maori settlers lived in, aren't there! I find it hard to imagine what living in an old wharepuni would be like. Would you like to stay in a wharepuni one day? It would certainly be very different.

    Can you think of any similarities between the wharepuni and your house? One similarity that I came up with is that they both have rooves.

    Let me know what you come up with!
