116

Along the same lines as yesterday, I chanced upon a useful resource again today during class time. My Syrian students had gone outside to collect some flax. They were being introduced to some aspects of Maori culture by a group of young people who had come to visit.

Meanwhile, I remained in the classroom. I did a search for flax weaving and discovered a 1-hour documentary about a man who has made that his life’s work. As the students spent longer than 10 minutes collecting their materials I could spend longer viewing.
