All things Great and Small: Maui and the sun display idea

Maui and the sun

We have been reading the book Maui and the sun. It's about how Maui and his brothers work as a team to slow down the sun so that everyone can enjoy longer days. We talked about how we are a team as well and shared our ideas about how we all help in our classroom. Then we made our own sun and took photos of ourselves pulling the sun in. It was a lot of fun and we enjoyed learning how to use the cameras. Take a look at our finished display.
