LI: To explore the world in 1840 and the art of Treaty.
This week we looked at what the world was like in 1840. Did you know that the boys used the drains to do there business and the girls had their own toilets?
After this we identified some of the key people and their role in signing the Treaty of Waitangi. What I found interesting that boys needed to work and girls got to stay home and help their parents, and to help with the house work.
We then used information from both of these activities to help us read the painting of the day the Treaty of Waitangi was signed. We used our prior knowledge to infer what the artist Marcus King might have wanted us to think.
