Welcome to Auckland Zoo's Learning at Home Resource Hub!

We’ve created easy to use lesson plans and learning resources to support teachers in your online classrooms and parents as you support your childrens’ learning at home.

We have separated them into suggested ages, but you know your young people the best, so pick and choose what is the most useful and enjoyable to you and them. All Learning at Home resources have been created with the curriculum and key competencies in mind by our awesome educators.
