Experiencing Native Trees in Greenspaces

Experiencing Native Trees in Greenspaces
Connect with trees in your local environment

This resource from the Department of Conservation (DOC) is part of the Exploring your Environment series, to encourage primary and intermediate students to go outdoors, explore and connect to a local green space.

Using this resource, students can:

  • connect with and learn about widespread New Zealand native trees
  • identify key native trees
  • begin to understand how native plants and trees are part of a wider ecosystem.

You can download the full PDF resource using the link provided above, and DOC have also provided links to each of the printable factsheets and other useful online resources. The webpage also includes information about the webinar series that was produced with Science Learning Hub, to provide professional learning support for kaiako using trees as a context for learning.
