Do you have any more to add? Leave us a comment underneath!

Matariki

Matariki is the Māori name for a group of stars (also known as the Pleiades). 
It rises in mid-winter – late May or early June. 

For many Māori, it signals the start of a new year. Matariki literally means the 'eyes of god' (mata ariki) or 'little eyes' (mata riki).

Other countries have different names for Pleiades. Can you find out what they are?

We created a Matariki cloak with the help of our buddy classes. Here they are!
