This Learning Story is based on an integrated unit on Matariki by the junior school classes from Newton Central School in Auckland. The unit has a technology focus and shows how the students develop an understanding of how simple tools used for planting, harvesting, and preserving crops work. The teachers worked collaboratively with the LEOTC educator discussing their unit plan, the specific needs of the group, and negotiating appropriate learning outcomes for the students.

The story format is based on the template and is in three sections. Follow the links below or on the left-hand navigation to each section.
