In this virtual session we ask the students; how do you look after yourself? We explore the way we care for animals at Auckland Zoo and connect it to how we may care for ourselves. We discuss the Te Whare Tapa Whā model, looking at the similarities between this health model and our Science of Care model we use at Auckland Zoo.
Students will walk away with a vocabulary to discuss their own health as well as a variety of strategies to help manage their wellbeing- such as diaphragmic breathing, creating your own safety mob, the importance of caring for our body and connecting to nature through some amazing animal stories.
This session has supporting activities that you can do both at home and in the classroom, that help support students manage themselves as well as building healthy relationships with others.
