We have been reading the legend of Maui and the Sun and Te Ika a Maui. We did some drama with them and had fun creating a WHOOSH circle! We then were set the challenge to design a device that would help Maui either catch the sun or fish up Aotearoa. We had to complete a design plan. Eleanor let us put hers in to show everyone!
Here we are trialling our first design!
This is me trying to catch the fish.
Here I am fishing up a fish (Aotearoa). My device worked!
I missed catching the sun because my device didn't work.
My device didn't work because it was too floppy.
My device worked. I caught the fish.
My device didn't work because it fell apart.
Yeah! My device worked!
It completely ... FAILED!
My device didn't work because it was too short.
Oh man! It didn't work!
I felt excited when I nearly caught it.
I felt nervous if I was going to get it or not ... it was too short!
My device didn't work because it was too floppy and short.
I'm going to reach ... Oh no, I didn't!
I felt happy that mine didn't work because I got to redesign it.
Will I catch it? Yes I did!
It worked, it worked, it worked!
Mine didn't work!
It worked because it was deep enough.
I caught it ... YAY!
After trialling we recreated our designs to see if they would work better.
When we were remaking our designs we tried to make them better by talking to each other.
Here are our final devices! Did they work????
Ask us to find out!
