Added by the GGNZ Programme Team

Resources

Gold stars
Black paper

Instructions

Let the Pippins stick the gold stickers onto black paper in the pattern – to create their own Matariki cluster.
Don’t be too worried if their stars are in slightly different positions - but do get them to stick to 9 stars.

There are differing views about how many stars are in Matariki. It used to be thought there were only 7, but there are 9 stars. See attached document.
