Make a memory poster

And kōrero with a loved one

He kanohi kitea he hokinga mahara — A face seen a memory stirred


Learn more about someone in your whānau by creating a memory poster.

Step 1

Kōrero with the eldest person in your whānau, asking:

  • What is your full name?
  • What is your earliest memory?
  • Where did you live at my age?
  • Growing up, what was your favourite kai?
  • And what were your favourite games?
  • What are your happiest memories?
  • What's most important for me to know about growing up?

Step 2

You now have all the information you need to make your memory page, or poster!

You could tell a story, draw a picture, write a poem or make a collage using photos and images.

Step 3

Share your poster and the things you’ve discovered with your whānau.
