KNOWLEDGE - What are the facts
1. When was Kupe supposed to have discovered Aotearoa?                                                                                     He was supposed to discover it, one thousand years ago.

2. Make a list of the materials you would need to make a vaka. Ro make a Vaka you will need coconut fiber and some Pandanus leaves.

COMPREHENSION - Show that you understand the information
3. Why would it be dangerous to sail on the open sea one thousand years ago? Because there was big waves and it might have died and drowned in the sea water.

4. Think of another title that summarises what the article is about and would be a good hook for the reader (Discovering Aotearoa.) or (Navigating Aotearoa)

APPLICATION - Using what you read in the article
5. Create a WANTED poster as an advertisement for a navigator on a vaka. Your poster should have a catchy title to get people’s attention, a picture or illustration, and a list of the skills needed for the job. Screenshot 2014-09-04 at 10.20.31 AM.png
