For an activity that involves listening in order to find out some information, either in pairs (takirua) or individually (takitahi), give the students a copy of a page from a calendar. Then ask them such questions as:

Maori vocabulary

English translation

Ko te aha te Rāhina tuawhā? What is the fourth Monday?

Their answers will be different, depending on their calendar page. Get the students to tell you the date in words, for example:

Maori vocabulary

English translation

Ko te rua tekau mā whā. It is the twenty-fourth.

You can reverse the information by saying the date and having the students find the day on their page.
