Give each student the What’s in a name (igoa)? worksheet and explain that this is a ‘take home’ activity where they can interview someone from their aiga (family) or someone who knows about their name, in order to capture the ‘story’ behind it.
Let them know that the following day, they’ll have the chance to capture this story as either:
- A film strip (print worksheet); or
- A poster (print worksheet).
The following day, ask students how they found the exercise. Did they make any interesting discoveries?
Give them time to create the story of their name (or the name of someone in their family/aiga) using the film strip OR to create a poster of their name – nice and large, with pictures of them, their family, some favourite things, and anything they enjoy doing around the edge.
