Today we looked at early Maori explorers and what they would have faced on their journey to New Zealand. We looked at how they would have navigated the ocean. In the article that we read as a class they mentioned a tool called the 'Tirito 'etu' or starpeeker. It looked like a coconut with holes in it in certain places. We wondered how they would use it.
Homework tonight! See who can find out some details about this tool.
