This Catlins Coast resource kit focuses on three sites, all within easy access of the Tautuku Outdoor Education Centre: Lake Wilkie,Tahakopa Bay and Picnic Point Scenic Reserve.
The aim of the resource is to encourage teachers to plan exciting, educational experiences in places with significant conservation and cultural values.
A brief summary of the area’s early history is included to help students understand the strategic importance of this coast, its rivers, estuaries and forests for the survival of the takata whenua (local people), and the sealers, whalers, saw millers and farmers who followed during the last 1000 years of human settlement.
This resource kit offers a selection of pre-visit, on-site and follow-up activities to provide students with a range of experiences in, about, and for the environment.
The sites can be used to meet goals from specific curriculum areas, or different curriculum areas simultaneously.
