Did you know that Tōtata trees are either male or female? Or that this tree was one of the top picks if you were building a waka? 

This pack has been assembled to celebrate this amazingly unique native tree! If you’re lucky enough to be teaching or learning in a whanau group/syndicate team/pod or hub which bears its name, then you’re in for a treat.

• A set of activity pages that explore some of the unique and important roles of the Tōtara tree in our native bush. The completed pages are assembled to create a little freestanding display (would also look great hung with string so they can twirl in the breeze) or they can be stored flat and read like a little book. 
• There is a selection of pages included – use as many as 8 or as few as 3!
• Themes covered include: space for making a bark and leaf rubbing of your Tōtara; space for sketching the leaves, cones & fruits of this tree; share your learning about male & female trees by illustrating the template provided; add to the tree to show how many other creatures rely on this tree as a habitat/food source; research and share your learning about the historical uses for this tree; complete the fact file with the scientific name, age, height, trunk girth/diameter of the Tōtara & where it’s commonly found
• This pack also includes a coloured Tōtara tree fact file containing basic information about its common names, where it’s found, threats & historical use by Māori.
• An ‘I wonder’ task card containing 3 Tōtara themed questions designed to prompt some deeper thinking about this unique tree.
• A coloured Tōtara picture card 
• *The foldable activity come with a supporting photograph sequence so you can see how to assemble the pages
