The perfect conversation starter or introduction into this rich topic of learning – Matariki & Puanga!


  • 1 Matariki themed poster, with the heading ‘Matariki’ and the inclusion of the Matariki constellation
  • 1 Puanga themed poster, with the heading ‘Puanga’ and the inclusion of the labelled star ‘Puanga’ above the Tautoro constellation (both to the left of the Matariki constellation, as seen in our night sky)

These 2 Collaborative posters each feature 32 A4 pages which assemble to make large wall displays (1.7 X 1.2 metres in size)

  • Simply print the pages provided and hand out one piece to each pupil to colour before assembling to create a large poster.
  • This set contains 32 pieces (hopefully no one has a class size larger than that!) In every collaborative poster, some pieces contain more detail than others—you can always hand out detailed pieces first & save the less complicated pieces for the early finishers.
  • You could choose to keep the completed image a secret (only to be revealed once it’s assembled) or share the completed image before starting to help guide their colour choices.
  • This poster features the Matariki & Tautoro constellations as well as the star Puanga in the sky, a whānau around a camp fire, and things symbolic of Matariki & winter in Aotearoa – a Ruru (Morepork), flowering houhere (lacebark), a garden tool, seeds, basket of kumara, a hīnaki, 9 decorative stars & manu (kite)
