Summer Learning Journey Activity #1 : The First Settlers : Facts About Maui

Maui . What have I learned from this famous demigod . You see that Maui pop up in the movie moana but you're probably thinking of the wrong Maui . The Maui I come to explain is the Maui from the maori culture .

Fact #1 - His Hook : One thing I have learned is something that some people already know is that he gained his hook which was a jawbone that belonged to his ancestor Muri Ranga Whenua .

Fact #2 - Fishing Skills : Maui was really ambitious about going fishing with his brothers and claimed he had the skills to fish alongside them . He proved that and managed to pull a giant fish that pulled them across the sea .

Fact #3 - His Spirit :  Maui was a type of person that would never give up no matter what . He proved this when he pulled a giant fish out of the sea even when his brothers were scared , He never gave up on catching the fish to feed his family.

    My name's Ruby and I'm one of the people who will be blogging with you over summer. I can see that you have already finished the activities! Wow! That's very impressive.

    I really like your three facts here about Maui. He is a little bit different from the Maui in the Moana movie!
    A really good way to describe Maui is to say that he persevered. That means to never give up even when things get tricky.

    Have you heard of any other Maui stories? I know a really good one about Maui and the sun. Here is the link to that story if you are interested in reading it:

    Let me know if you enjoyed that story!
