LI: To write a set of clear instructions that shows how to make a Hangi.
Title: How to make a Hangi?
A Hangi is a traditional form of underground cooking for New Zealand Maori.
You will need:
- volcanic stones
- cloth sacks
- metal basket (cooking tray)
- hook tool
- cylinder of water
- vegetables (cabbage, potatoes, carrots, taro leaves, kumera, pumpkin)
- meat (ox, chicken, beef, lamb, pork)
- Dig a hole for the food basket in it. (Make sure it’s a slightly bigger hole to fit the food basket)
- Collected twigs/kinding
- Stack the iron and the woods to a Jenga way.
- Get a metal basket (cooking basket) for the foods and place tin-foil on it.
- Light the twigs/kinding and the stones on fire with the lighter.
- When lighting the fire leave the fire to burn about 3 to 5 hours
- Get your meat ready while waiting, put your meat in the metal basket.
- If your Hangi finish burning, use your shovel to place the heated stones in the hole.
- Soak 5 sacks into the cylinder of water
- Place it on the stones (Or you could use taro leaves)
- Then carefully place your food basket into the Hangi (use gloves)
- Place a wet sheet all over the food basket
- Cover the wet sheet and food basket with sacks
- Cover the hole with dirt and place it.
- Wait for 3 hours (While waiting, just make sure that everything is safe)
- Dig out the dirt and take out the wet sheets and sacks.
- Carefully take out the food basket
Safety Message: Make sure to stay around the oven and don’t leave it hanging.
Today we unpacked how to follow and write a set of instructions. To do this effectively your instructions need to be explicit and the steps to follow ordered. Each step begins with an instructional verb and should be written in a way that is easy to understand.
I enjoyed the roleplay because it was fun and easier for me when I’m instructing my partner on how to do something and what you need.
