The materials for the digital escape game are available on the Alliance Française webpage. The activity is based on five key threats to biodiversity including overfishing, deforestation and plastic in the oceans. The target age group is 5-10 years old and the activity will take about 1-1.5 hours.
For statistical purposes, we would love to know if you use the activity with your class in November and what you think about it. email@example.com

During Get Outdoors Week, you are encouraged to get out and about safely in New Zealand’s beautiful, but sometimes dangerous outdoor environment. An important part of staying safe is understanding where you are going and letting others know about your location. Mapping plays a key role in enabling you to stay safe and have fun when you go off the beaten track.
On this field trip, find out how maps help you plan your adventure, keep you safe in the outdoors, and assist organisations in finding you if something goes wrong.

Most of us get around in cars, either as drivers or passengers. However, many students walk or bike to school while some take the bus or train. Every time you bus, walk, or take the train, you help reduce traffic congestion and pollution.
This trip fits well with big ideas such as: design thinking, future focus, personal health and well-being, perspectives, transport, technological change and innovation.

The Alpine Fault is one of Earth's most impressive geological features and capable of generating big earthquakes; in fact we're already a little overdue for one.
Scientists are trying to understand how the Alpine Fault works and how a really big earthquake will affect land, infrastructure and people. Such an earthquake will be felt by everyone in Aotearoa and AF8 (Alpine Fault magnitude 8) is helping us get better prepared.
Join us on a journey along the spectacular Alpine Fault as we share scientists' findings with you and your class.
