Playing fun Niuean games.


As a fun way to introduce the Niuean language to the class I decided to teach Room 1 two Niuean games that children play at the Niuean village sports day.

Game one is a skiing game where the students are dragged across the grass while holding onto a long stick. The idea is to balance and stay on the coconut tusk with out falling.



The second game is a game just like javelin where the students must throw a stick called a "Sika" as far as they possibly can. The winner is the thrower who has thrown the "Sika" furtherest.
