We live in Aotearoa New Zealand. As well as our national bond, we are also connected to local places like our home, our school, our workplace, our marae and these connections contribute to our identity. Maps have always been a means of recording information, as well as a means of expression and communication. In the 21st Century we can use layers on modern digital maps to hide and show complexity and enhance maps as places to record and communicate a wide variety of inter-connected information. On this virtual field trip, you will go to the East Coast with students as they explore their place and get ideas for how your class can do so, too. Free for NZ teachers and their classes.
