The sixth and seventh graders completed a diorama project in Hawaiian Studies about the Ahupua’a. Students first had to identify our current ahupua’a of Ko’olaupoko (He’eia) and then research how the Hawaiians sustained it many years ago. They then had to come up with ways in which we could maintain and support an ahupua’a today. The student were charged with creating a model of a sustainable ahupua’a using various materials. They then did an oral presentation and a written reflection. The seventh graders will use this reflection as part of their service learning project later in the school year.
