Matariki Fact Recall

We have been learning about Matariki and the constellation. Matariki is a small cluster of stars and it is also known as Plieades. There are several hundred stars but only seven of them can be seen. Matariki is a traditional Maori New Year. Matariki is celebrated with education and sharing ideas. Matariki is a time for remembering people you've lost.

Did you know that the Matariki constellation is called ‘Subaru’ in Japan? Or that although we can normally only see 6-7 stars with the naked eye, there are actually over 400 included in the Matariki cluster? This 56 page mini booklet pack is designed to support your classroom discussions and learning about Matariki. *Also included in this resource is a large wall display banner and a set of word wall cards.
