Inquiry learning resource for Years 5-8 students that builds students' citizenship competencies in response to transport issues.
Active Travel Action is a new curriculum resource targeted for Year 5-8 students (adaptable to Yr 0-8) developed by Enviroschools Te Upoko o te Ika a Māui and Greater Wellington Regional Council.
It provides an inquiry process for students to take action in response to congestion at school gates, climate change and student well-being.
The resource incorporates Te Ao Māori concepts and encourages students to lead an inquiry by exercising their “citizenship muscles” and engaging with whānau, peers and teachers to investigate how they can travel more sustainably as a school community.
Here's a look at some learning activities. These examples are from sections 2, 4 and 6.
