Aotearoa New Zealand Histories-Shine a Spotlight on Peace Pins
Our Year 7 and 8 ākonga have been learning about Aotearoa New Zealand Histories through picture books. The book we focused on recently was Remember that November which incorporates two different historical events that occurred on the 5th of November, Guy Fawkes and Parihaka. My ESOL students decided to focus on Parihaka and the peaceful protest of Taranaki Iwi in the face of provocation and military might.
The steps they took to make their designs were:
- Using Tayasui Sketches to design and draw their peace symbols and then incorporating them into the pin shape on Keynote.
- Using Apple Maps to screenshot a satellite image of Parihaka, changing the filter in the camera roll to represent the past and adding it into Keynote.
- Choosing the circle shape, using arrange and then subtracting it to form the spotlight effect on Keynote.
Hopefully you can utilise or adapt this resource with your students to discuss and learn about peaceful historical protests in different countries around the world.
