Whio Forever is an integrated curriculum teaching and learning resource with the whio/blue duck as the real life context for learning. The resource covers multiple learning areas of the New Zealand Curriculum.

It has been developed for primary school teachers, with two versions available – one for junior primary (years 1-4) and one for senior primary (years 5-8).

The resource comes classroom ready, including step by step teaching notes and a termplan. There are also a range of powerpoint presentations and posters available to support the resource.

Grounded in Environmental Education for Sustainability themes, the Whio Forever resource incorporates aspects of Te Ao Māori (a Māori worldview).

You can find the education resource here.
