On the 20th of September we were weaving flax. First we read a article in the School Journal. The story was about weaving flax. When we finished reading we went to the native plant garden to get flax to weave and put on our mask. When we got there Mr Wood showed us the mother, father and grandparent leaves. Then we had to say a Karakia (Prayer). Mr Wood then started cutting the flax. We each got 2 flax leaves. We went back to the class ready to turn flax into flowers. When we finished making them we stuck them onto our cultural identity masks.
