LI: To explore the world 1840 and the art of the Treaty.
This week we looked at the what the world was like in 1840. Did you know people were poor so boys had to clean out chimneys to make money for their parents. After this we identified some of the key people and their role in the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. I found it interesting that I thought the person signing the Treaty was Hone Heke because he had a tiaha. We then used the information from both of these activities to help us read a painting of the day the treaty was signed. We used our knowledge to infer what the artist Marcus King might have wanted us to think was happening.
I found this interesting because what each person wrote as a contribute to the Treaty of Waitangi.
