Through the World of Whales educational resource kit, we’ll help you teach kids about these animals and their environment, so they can play a bigger part in the protection of marine mammals in the future.
Teachers can order a kit using the link provided above, and only need to cover the cost of postage. Kits include a teacher guide, lesson plans, worksheets and large charts and posters for your walls.
The Project Jonah website also includes a Useful Facts page with information about whale and dolphin species found around Aotearoa.
Kaiako in Tāmaki Makaurau, Te Whanganui-ā-Tara and Whakatū can also request a visit from one of the educators in your area.
The World of Whales Educational Resource Kit has been compiled and written by Barbara Todd, BSc. Barbara worked as an educator for many years before becoming involved in whale research. Since 1980, she has worked as a field researcher on projects studying whales in the Caribbean, United States and New Zealand.
Barbara has initiated and participated in a variety of educational programmes aimed at both adults and children. Barbara’s photographs have appeared in numerous publications and she is the author of fifteen books.
