Kindergarten / ECE Lesson Plan – Lesson Plan on July (Reggio New Zealand), Reggio philosophy

We currently have this lesson plan on July in New Zealand on our waitlist to be built. Join our waitlist for this Reggio plan (link in navigation).

In July, New Zealand celebrates Matariki, the Mฤori New Year, with various cultural events and activities. Additionally, the country also commemorates Waitangi Day on July 6th, which marks the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi between the British Crown and Mฤori chiefs in 1840. Preschool learning environments could be created around these events by incorporating Mฤori culture and traditions into the classroom. Teachers could decorate the room with Matariki-themed artwork and provide resources such as books and videos that teach children about the significance of the holiday. They could also invite Mฤori elders or community members to share their knowledge and stories with the children. Potential preschool lesson plan ideas could include creating Matariki-inspired art projects, learning traditional Mฤori songs and dances, and exploring the constellations that are associated with the holiday. For Waitangi Day, teachers could introduce children to the history of the Treaty of Waitangi and its importance in New Zealand’s culture and identity. They could also engage in activities that promote understanding and respect for different cultures and perspectives
