Maori Raukau Stick Game ~ Thanks Room 8@Melville School!

Mrs. Yollis' class loves to learn new things. 

Here is the Maori Stick Game we learned from our friends in Room 8@Melville Int. School in New Zealand.

First, we watched their tutorial below.

We practiced and practiced. 

We're not perfect, but we've had a good time!

What did you think of the game?

Have you ever played?


  1. Mrs Yollis - am so thrilled, this is one of the best videos ever and thank your students so much for it, it will mean so much to our students!
    Mr Webb and Room 8, Melville Intermediate, Hamilton, New Zealand.

  2. Dear Mrs Yollis and students,
    how wonderful I really loved watching you play the Maori Raukau Stick Game even with the giggles.
    You all did a great job. I was wondering do the sticks have to be a certain length?
    Bianca and I will have to play this game over the school break and see if we can get as good as you guys.
    When I was at school we used to plays games slapping and clapping ours hands together with another person and singing at the same time.
    Thanks for a playful post I really have enjoyed watching it
    from your friend down under AA>

  3. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

    I have never played this game before.
    It looks like a very challenging and fun game.I would like to try it as soon as I get the sticks. It seems it's easy, but I'm sure in order to do it right, needs lot of practice and concentration.
    Thanks to Mr. Webb and Room 8 for sharing your game with us.

    Your Fan Blogger,
