Let's Celebrate!

For Social Studies with Mrs. W, the class have been inquiring into celebrations in New Zealand and in other countries of our Pacific and Asia region. 
After talking about some of the celebrations we have in NZ, 
we decided to focus on New Year celebrations.
Matariki is the Maori New Year, and is celebrated during winter.
The class read some stories about Matariki and investigated ways in which people might celebrate the occasion.
We communicated this part of our learning by interviewing each other.
To be successful, we had to share three ideas about how we might celebrate Matariki, and add some detail.

When do you celebrate New Year?
How do you celebrate it?
