Curiosity cards

These cards are designed to inspire inquiry.

Each has a context for exploring and learning, featuring an image of a unique heritage item of Aotearoa New Zealand and related examples of 'fertile questions'.

The cards include links to relevant online content (enabling you to access background information, basic concepts and other resources), and suggested search terms to help you locate supporting material.

A blank template is also included so that you can design your own, local cards.
