resources for teachers
We have developed three full educational modules which are fully linked to the NZ curricula.
The modules are for:
- energy (stationary and transport);
- and conservation.
We can also provide a direct internet link to two of our computer games - Environmental Footprint and My Driving Day. This allows the teachers to trial the exhibit prior to the Tread Lightly Caravan visit and therefore tailor their educational preparation. Teachers can use this link as a follow up to go over key learnings and educational messages after the TLC visit.
We also have specific educational handouts with each of our exhibits.
Once a school has booked the TLC, we arrange a meeting with the key teachers approximately one month before the TLC visit. The teachers then have the choice to:
- use our full educational modules;
- use our exhibit tailored educational material and internet links;
- complete their own preparation.
In most cases, the teachers use a combination of our resources and their own educational material.
