Magic String/Summer Learning Journey

  1. Kia ora Eziaz,

    I know that trick too. Everybody used to do it in school. That is a whai string game. That is where the magic string activity you have done has come from. Whai string games are just creating patterns with string. They were a way for warriors to practice their hand eye coordination and often the patterns they made told stories.

    Were you able to create any other patterns with your string? Keep practicing and you might be able to make some really complicated patterns to show your friends at school.

    Remember to include as much information in your description as possible. I’ve included some ideas below for you to help you with the structure of a description.
