Who is in our backyard? Stories about our backyard...

We have been doing some finding out about the important people that have lived in our land before us. This is linked to our next inquiry, "who is in our backyard?" 


We generated questions for each of the stories...



Who was Kupe?  Where did he come from?  Who was with him?  What did he do when he was here?  Where did he live when he was here? How did he get here?  How did he get home?
