At the time of Matariki, the star cluster is in the morning sky in the East. You will need to get up well before sunrise and looking due East you will notice three stars in a row. This is Tautoru/Orions belt. Above these stars you will see Puanga/Rigel. Tautoru points to the right at Takurua/Sirius and to the left to Matariki.
From Te Papa - Matariki Education Resource - This unit of work aims to raise your students’ awareness of Matariki, a significant festival that is celebrated throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. It is designed for both Early Childhood and Primary learners, and has cross curricular links with the 5 strands of Te Whāriki, as well as Social Sciences, Science, Literacy, and Learning Languages areas of the New Zealand Curriculum.
This could be related to the unit of language. It reminds me of something that would be used the dual immersion Spanish/English speaking school from the movie Speaking in Tongues. However, it could be used in any school to promote language diversity, or for a teacher who had Spanish and English students in his/her classroom.
