Week One: Day Two:Activities 1+2

Day 2: It’s All in a Day’s Work
Activity 1: A House or a Home?
In the 1800s, most Māori lived in villages called pa.
Each village had many buildings – kauta where people
cooked, pataka where they stored goods and wharepuni
where the Māori slept. A traditional wharepuni had a thatched
roof and walls made of timber, fern, rushes and bark. Look at
the picture above of a traditional wharepuni. Does it look like
your house?

On your blog, compare the wharepuni to your own home.
What are two similarities and two differences between a
wharepuni and your house?
