Every marae has protocols and rules that you must follow while you are there.  Listen to the
tangata whenua and write down the rules that you are to follow while you are at Tuhuru.  Present
it as a poster on this page:
(Me pēhea) take off your shoes when you go
the wharenui.
you can play in the grass.
you need to get shoes you cant wear jandals
on the trip.
you must not have more than 3 pieces of food
in a serve.

(Kaua) don't go by the flax because
it's the maori treasure and dont push in to the
front of the line.
Dont pull out the green stones in the carings they
want them to last for a long time.

Final Activity:

What did you enjoy the most? What was a challenge?  Do you feel that you know a little more
about Te Ao Maori? What are you most proud of doing today?  Is there anything that you now
want to learn more about? I leant a lot more about mouri when i went to the marea. I enjoyed the
carrot cake it was delicious.  I was not trying not to get bored in the car.
