Our Native Bush Study

We are looking at all the trees, ferns and other plants that grow in our NZ native bush. There are many insects and little creatures that live in the bush. Lots of beautiful birds that live in the bush. We are seeing how these plants and creatures all live together and how they survive and how we could survive in the bush too.
The trees all have special names and Maori names. We can see how the Maori people lived in and off the bush and the great use they had for it.

Here we are looking at different leaves from the trees in the bush. We see Rimu, Totorua, Kauri and Pohutukawa.

  1. Room 1: you will have to teach me the different names for the native trees. I wonder how you can tell the difference between them?
