This is how you played:You toss the ball and try to catch it in the circle. You count how many times you can catch the ball without missing. While the Hawaiians were playing this game they sang a special chant.  It took lots of skill to play this game. Some Hawaiians were able to catch the ball over one hundred times. They were good at ring and ball. </li></ul>Ring and Ball - PALA'IE By: Cienna Corpuz                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
  4. 4. Sledding- HOLUA by Bryn Wilcox   <ul><li>    Most people think of sledding as something primarily during Christmas and in snow. The Hawaiians of old didn't. To them sledding was a year round activity. Sledding was down a grassy slope. Ordinary  civilians rode on coconut fronds or the leaves of a plant called ti. Only young chiefs rode on sleds, which are actually closer to modern day skis. These sleds are long, wooden,and slender. Before riding, a chief oiled his sled and took it to a large slope. Sledding was a hazardous activity. But it was fun! </li></ul>
  5. 5. String Figures - HEI By:Alyssa Faletoi <ul><li>Some children today like to make figures with strings. They make things like the Cat's Cradle, Jackob's Ladder, and the Witches Broom. Men and women in old Hawai'i also made string figures too.  They made their own  olona cords. They also where clever in using their fingers. Men and women made over one hundred different kinds of figures. Some of the games they had to use two people, like the Cat's Cradle. With some of the games they had to use their toes or teeth to make some figures. As they started to make the figure they chanted. The figure that they were making had a story and the chant told the story. The rule of the game was to try and make the figure.The second time you tried to memorize it.  </li></ul>
