These topic planners offer suggested pathways through some of the marine resources on the Science Learning Hub and connect to relevant programmes offered by NZ Marine Studies Centre.

The topic planners focus on the following themes

  • Food webs
  • Adaptation
  • Biodiversity
  • Marine habitats.

The topic planners can be used to create your own personalised teaching unit and can be used in any combination or order.

They can also be used to help plan pre/post-activities if your class is going on a marine-themed field trip.
