Making birthday graphs

Start. Adapt the template that is available on nzmaths for keke huritau (birthday cake) to make a chain of birthday cakes showing how old the students in your class are. If some of your students have only recently started school, get them to write their name and, underneath it, their age:

Maori vocabulary

English translation

E rima aku tau. I am five years old.

Turn this into a wall display. Put smaller versions of the cakes on a large bar graph to show your class how many students are five, six, or seven years old, for example.
