Join Greta Dromgool from the Science Learning Hub as she explores mātauranga resources related to the Living World.
The Hub has a growing collection of articles, activities and interactives related to mātai koiora/biology. In this session we will discover resources on topics such as ngā hekaheka/fungi, ngā pepe/moths and rongoā that have been designed to build your knowledge and confidence to incorporate mātauranga Māori into your teaching. Several of these resources are available in te reo Māori.
This session will be in te reo Pākehā and will be of interest to teachers of all levels.
