Canoe Plants

Christi Barrow

As part of their Fourth Grade studies, students at Lanaʻi Elementary School researched plants brought by early Polynesian voyagers.

Once they discovered the description, growing habitat, and ethnobotanical uses of their plant, they wrote poems to honor the plant.

Finally they created illustrations of their plants using oil pastels and black tempera paint.

Materials for the illustrations were provided by Donors Choose sponsors: NEA, Chevron, and Roseanna Vierra.
