The Polynesians migrated to Hawai‘i from Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands around 500 AD, sailing on traditional double-hulled canoes. They left their homelands for a variety of reasons, but one thing is certain: they traveled quite a far distance to reach the remote Hawaiian Islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. In this lesson, students will measure the distance that early Polynesian voyagers traveled to reach our islands. In addition, students will compare distances between our school and their home, nearest town, and a common landmark on the island. This lesson will allow students to understand their location relative to other places in this world using Google Maps.
