Hanahau'oli Assembly by Po'e Ka'ahele

Assembly-goers were treated with not one, but two presentations from the Po'e Ka'ahele class this past Friday! First, the students presented their Historical Fiction projects then they walked us through their Big Island Trip technology projects. It was a fun mix of "old" and "new" juxtaposing the kids dressed up as historical figures for the first half of Assembly then putting on a Power Point presentation of their scientific, cultural, and environmental findings on Hawaii Island for the second!

The Kulāiwi class studies geology each year so the Po'e Ka'ahele class though it'd be great to share what they learned on their Big Island Trip in an interactive way by creating a Virtual Field Trip.

Each white dot on the map represents a project that the students completed about a topic pertaining to their learning. Here is an example below of a 360 degree view with learning buttons to click on. What a fun way to learn about the the cultural and geological significance at any age!

A few of the topics included were: The Mo'okini Heiau, A'a vs. Pahoehoe Lava, Island Formation of Lō'ihi, Rainforests, Active vs. Dormant Volcanoes, and Independence (going on a trip without parents or guardians for the first time and how new that felt!).

Thank you to the Po'e Ka'ahele class for building such a fantastic learning tool for us to use for years to come!
