Reading

Understanding: Write a summary of the main events from the story.

Chatham Island is so small on the map, it’s very tricky to find. It is known for its strong winds and its many storms. The weather can be so wild, sailor call this part of the pasific; roaring forties.


Because of the strong wind, the people had to design a boat that would have a place to store their fish that they catch. The boat also had to be super super super super super super super super super super super super super super super super super super super super strong because of the wild wind.

What made the waka so special was their clever yet simple design. Each waka had a rectangular shape and a steeply rising bow. Two parallel runners on the bottom of the hull formed the backbone of the waka and helped to support the framing work. The floor and sides were made of reeds. Some waka had a base of inflated kelp.

Applying: Make a comic strip about the story










Creating: Create a board game or digital game about the story.
