Come to Te Papa and learn about Pacific navigation!

In this PLD session, you will explore Te Papa’s collections and hear the stories of our early pacific navigators, how they navigated the seas, and how they maintained their identity once they got to their new country.

After this we will head to Hīnātore, our Learning Lab, where you’ll explore a range of activities you can take back in to the classroom to use with your students to explore these topics.

Aimed at teachers who engage with primary students, but all levels are welcome as you may be able to adapt learning to suit your students.
