Planning learning experiences in te ao kori can be guided by the whakataukī (proverb):
- Prepare your garden, plant the seeds, nurture and tend to the plants, watch them prosper and flower and enjoy the turning.
- Karia te māra, whakatōhia ngā purapura, tiakinā ngā tipu kia hua, kia puāwai kia hua ake anō ko te māhuri e.
Raharuhi Rukupō (c1800–1873), master carver of Te Hau-ki-Turanga
Exploring Te Ao Kori provides a facility for teachers to approach the Māori world of movement without anxiety as they seek to offer learning opportunities. It provides teachers with holistic contexts to meet the learning needs of their students through many of the teaching and learning goals expressed in the curriculum documents Health and Physical Education in the New Zealand Curriculum (1999), Hauora I roto I te Marautanga o Aotearoa: He Tauira, The Arts in the New Zealand Curriculum, and Ngā Toi I roto I te Marautanga o Aotearoa.
