Maui & the giant fish

3 Facts - Maui

1 . Maui has 2 brothers

2 . Maui firstly made an incredible catch to a great big fish

3. Maui is the youngest out of his siblings

This week I read a Maori legend based on Maui & the giant fish . I learnt how to find 3 facts by reading Maui & the giant fish carefully. I then put down 3 facts that I found in the book,I read . Have you read a different legend about Maui & the giant fish before? Let me know in the comments below. I have seen and heard more than one Maui & the giant fish because there are lots of books that are different because its just a legend. Legend meaning a traditional story sometimes popularly regarded as historical but not authenticated. Most people see Maui & the giant fish differently because they have read a different story . The legend that I read is that Maui used his blood from his nose to get the giant fishes attention. When he caught the fish he told his brothers to not kill the fish while he leaves.  LI: to use my researching skills to find 3 facts using the topic maui & the giant fish.

    I like that you added extra information at the end of your post to tell the reader a little more about what you learnt. Yes, you're right, there are a lot of different versions of the story and they all usually say something a little different. I remember reading a different one when I was younger, I also read about Maui and the Sun too. Have you read that one?

    Well done on getting started, I look forward to reading more of your blog!
