Hands-On Homework

While we were at the marae I noticed that you were all very good at working together and helping with the different jobs that needed to be done. I particularly noticed that people loved helping in the kitchen to get the meals ready. So, this weeks hands-on homework is to help cook a meal for your family. It's a lot of fun to make a meal, especially when you're working together with someone else. Don't forget to send me pictures of the amazing meals you make!
