Lively Lessons: Easter Island

Easter Island, also known as Rapa Nui, was named by a Dutch explorer who landed there on Easter Sunday in 1722. Known for its giant, carved monuments, Easter Island is the richest site of the megaliths of the Pacific island groups.

In this Lively Lesson, students explore the cultural significance of these moai and the environmental impact of their carving and placement on the island.
