In this activity, students make connections between the river environment and the species in and around it, learning about their relationships. The activity helps them visualise the interdependence within the river environment.

By the end of this activity, students should be able to:

  • describe the interdependence between some of the species in a river environment and between these species and the river environment
  • justify some of these connections by describing the relationship between them
  • explain with some understanding how Waikato-Tainui iwi view their connectedness to the river.
