Over the last few weeks we have been learning about significant events in NZ's history and the effect these have had on Maori. We started by learning about the struggle at Parihaka where the Maori showed peaceful resistance. As a class we brainstormed the many ways that people can show peaceful and passive resistance including petitions, taking an issue to parliament, protesting, boycotting, going on strike, holding a march and voting in elections/referendums.
We then split off into groups to research other Maori issues that have seen the use of both violent and non-violent resistance. We then shared the information that we found with the class.

This week we have been looking at the language of statistical investigations. Working in small groups we came up with a question which required an investigation, we then carried out a survey and created a frequency table to show our results. Then we used equipment around the classroom to create a column graph of our findings.
