Tupaia Reading Response activity

An important, but lesser-known, figure in Aotearoa New Zealand’s history is the navigator and high priest Tupaia. His story is told in an article in the August 2019 Level 3 School Journal. This is suitable for Year 5 to Year 8 students.

This Tupaia Reading Response activity includes a print-and-go worksheet set out in a Must Do, Choose Two style. Build independence and student agency through providing choice.

We’ve also provided a PDF link to the journal article within this resource.

    • What stories do hapū and iwi tell about their whakapapa and their voyaging and exploration?
