      Puppet Pals HD on iPad - ICT Key Competencies Links

      At Waihi East Primary School a year 5/6 class is studying 'Matariki' with a view to performing a myth or legend relating to 'Matariki' in a school show near the end of term 2 2011. Our Arts drama focus is - Level 3 Achievement Objective: Developing Ideas: Initiate and develop ideas with others to create drama. Specific Learning Outcomes selected for Assessment: Students will perform a drama including their understandings of Matariki (whakapapa, the land, the stars) in the Production. We are linking key competencies with this 'Matariki' unit they are: 'Participating and Contributing' and 'Relating to Others'.

      An ICT learning experience that links with these 'Key Competencies' is outlined below:
      We listened/watched a movie of the 'Creation Myth' to familiarize ourselves with the story line and characters. Next we used Puppet Pals HD on the iPad to re-enact the myth or legend. Link with Key Competencies - 'Participating and Contributing' working together in a group to draw the characters in the myth and to rehearse each persons speaking parts. Key Competency - 'Relating to Others' students behaved appropriately during rehearsal having turns, encouraging each other to use good character voices. Below is one of our Puppet Pals HD Creation Myths.
