Now that’s thinking is our new theme for this Term. It is all about how technology has changed since maori found New Zealand. We have been looking at what has been used to make technology and what technology really is.
Technology could be a Phone, a computer and headphones. Anything that works is technology. This isn’t all ! Technology isn’t just things that are electrical. It could be boats or waka which maori used. It could also be things like windows,buildings and paper.
This term team 4 is learning about maori technology. Maori people made their own technology.
I think maori technology is waka, their carvings on marae, and tiki and there kete that they weaved with flax.
We know longer use the things maori used back in the day. Maori used trees and wood. We use things that are made out of metal, aluminium, titanium and many more because we have people who travel from other countries that bring new resources.
