Our A Week in New Zealand History resource explores key moments within Aotearoa New Zealand’s history. This resource serves as a bite-sized piece of Aotearoa’s history to stir discussion, pique interest, and get you started.
In this set, our Discussion Google Slides and PDF explore 16 events from the month of November (see the full list below). The resource has clear links to the Aotearoa New Zealand Histories Curriculum for Year 4-6 and Year 7-8.
Each slide contains a brief paragraph explainer, a discussion question, an inquiry prompt, and two “Dig Deeper” links to websites, videos, and photos.
We’ve also included a full set of posters with QR codes if you would rather print and present these as posters in your room.
