Rangi means weather or sky in te reo and the 14 lessons offer intermediate age students an engaging and interactive way to learn about Aotearoa’s weather and climate. Each lesson contains easy-to-understand information, videos, an activity or experiment and a quiz.
The content was co-developed by NIWA’s climate researchers and meteorologists, with a group of West Auckland intermediate schools.
