Protecting Our Estuaries

This resource from the Department of Conservation (DOC) is an integrated curriculum teaching resource using New Zealand’s estuaries as a real-life context for learning. It is based on the New Zealand Curriculum at levels 1–4 (years 1–8) but can be adapted for use at various levels.

It contains teaching and learning material to support a unit of work grounded in Environmental Education for Sustainability (EEfS)/ conservation education themes. It incorporates aspects of Te Ao Māori (a Māori world view). The unit is based on an integrated, inquiry learning process, including science, social science, the arts and technology objectives alongside literacy and numeracy learning.

You can download the full unit using the website link above, or choose to download individual activities and resources. Within each activity there are links to videos, slideshows, posters and games (such as Kahoots).
