In the 1800s, most Māori lived in villages calledpa. Each village had many buildings –kauta where people cooked,pataka where they stored goods andwharepuni where the Māori slept. A traditionalwharepuni had a thatched roof and walls made of timber, fern, rushes and bark. Look at the picture below of a traditional wharepuni. Does it look like your house?
On your blog, compare thewharepuni to your own home. What are two similarities and two differences between a wharepuni and your house?

Activity 2: The Rules of Engagement
During the early years in New Zealand, men and women would often marry at a young age. Women were expected to have babies and remain in the home caring for their children. Few, if any, left home in search of work. Men, on the other hand, were expected to work outside of the home.
These days, we don’t have the same strict expectations about work. Girls and boys can choose their own path in life. In fact, I was lucky enough to go to university and to follow my dream of becoming a teacher!
What is your dream job?Draw a picture of yourself doing your dream job and post it on your blog. You could be a doctor, an actor or even a zookeeper! I have drawn myself taking a picture of a beautiful castle in Poland because I would love to become a travel blogger and photographer one day.
I really didn’t have any paper on me to draw what i wanted to draw but here is
Something that I would love to become one day, and that is vlogging and filming
Filming will be traveling around the world and explore, and vlogging is something to you
Wanna go and then post it just like you do with blogging.
Bonus Activity: Special Meals
Back in the 1800s, most Māori ate a simple diet. They ate foods that they could catch in the water (eg. fish) or grow on the land (eg. kumara). They did not have access to a supermarket to buy food for their meals! Speaking of meals, what is your favourite meal? Mine is wood-fired pizza. Yum!
On your blog, post a picture of your favourite meal. Be sure to tell us what it is and why it is
your favourite. You could also include the recipe if you have it so that we can all try it!
