OUR CHALLENGE

As Aotearoa New Zealand's population becomes more and more diverse, it is important that we all understand how to create relationships with cultures other than our own.

 

Your challenge is to use the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023 ™ to research culture and collective identity and share what you find out at your own world cup festival.

LEARN

SETTING THE SCENE

Building relationships and creating connections between people requires the ability to understand and value cultural differences. Major sporting events such as the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023 ™ bring countries together from around the globe and provide an opportunity to learn about the different cultures of each of those countries.

 

Listen closely to Paige Satchell and Adam Paulsen as they discuss how football and futsal contribute to the culture and collective identities of countries all around the world. You can use these ideas to help guide you when you explore different cultures and prepare for your own world cup festival.

LEARN ABOUT CULTURE & COLLECTIVE IDENTITY

There are three sets of classroom learning experiences and a set of football and futsal experiences to help build the knowledge and skills you will need to learn about and understand culture and collective identity. Your teacher will decide with you which experiences you are going to use and will tailor these to the phase of schooling that you are currently in (either years 4-6 or years 7-8). Your teacher will also frame with you how the learning intentions for each activity relate to the following key things to know from Te ao tangata | Social sciences (including Aotearoa New Zealand's histories) for your phase of learning. 

Years 4-6

Ngā ahurea me te tuakiri kiritōpū | Culture and collective identity
Culture shapes individual and collective identities and creates diversity within societies. People’s cultural practices and relationships can vary but reflect similar purposes. The stories of groups of people from different periods in our history convey their reasons for and experiences of migration. These stories have shaped their culture and identity in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Years 7-8

Ngā ahurea me te tuakiri kiritōpū | Culture and collective identity
People use different ways to sustain and evolve their culture and identity. Mid-twentieth-century M
āori migration to New Zealand cities occurred at an unprecedented pace and scale, leading to new approaches to being Māori and retaining iwi values and practices being created and debated. Over time, people from a wide range of cultures have migrated to and participated in and contributed to Aotearoa New Zealand, while retaining and adapting their distinctive identities.

Regardless of the phase of learning that you are in, the intention is that the activities will help you to explore and deepen your understanding of how interactions change societies.

Connecting Locally

We start our learning journey by exploring how culture and collective identity in Aotearoa New Zealand has been formed and continues to be shaped by people connecting locally.

TAKE ACTION

You will remember when you started on the Kōtuitui learning journey that your challenge was to research cultures of countries involved in the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™ and to draw conclusions about how the event might further shape Aotearoa New Zealand’s culture and collective identity. To support your progression toward becoming knowledgeable about ngā ahurea me te tuakiri kiritōpū (culture and collective identity) we have set up two challenges, one each for ākonga in years 4-6, and years 7-8. Regardless of the phase of learning that you are in, the intention is that the challenges will help you progress in building your capability to use the social inquiry process.
