settlement unit plan

Check out the updated Settlement free Unit Plan from Education Resources. Based on an old Uni-Tech unit, this updated version will engage learners and provides a fascinating and fun way to look at settlement and colonialism.

Lots of activities for all learning styles and for teachers as well. Careful though; it's a big unit. Just use parts of it, or the whole lot.


Budgeting and Social Science Unit

This unit will provide an interesting way to look at budgeting. Lots of hands on stuff for learners. Plenty of need for technology,  but also a need to interact and collaborate.

Learn about the Moriori, the indigenous people of the Chatham Islands and how their culture has been sustained despite hardship and isolation. Learn about the wonderful gifts that Rēkohu has to offer the world as it is a veritable Noah's Ark in the South Pacific.


Marae kawa unit planThis unit is a re-work of a popular unit (that features on many websites) and seems to be the go-to for those educators about to take their class on a marae visit, or for those covering the treaty, without much enthusiasm.

This version focuses the unit predominantly on the kawa and history of Kōpinga Marae, the only Moriori marae in the world.



As this site is designed, built, hosted and updated by Hokotehi Moriori Trust, all of the completed unit-plans on this site must include a Moriori perspective in some format. For many unit-plans, this simply involves a reflection on how the topic would impact on Moriori as a people. In other units, there are specific learning tasks about the Moriori people and the Rēkohu environment. All units must also have a strong focus on 21st century learning tools and have the key competencies central to the learning.

Using these unit-plans you can now teach your students about a completely different New Zealand culture, without leaving the classroom. Most units are complete with all resources and/or links necessary for you to be able to teach the entire unit without having to look for supplementary material.

 Information pertaining to Moriori is reproduced by permission of Hokotehi Moriori Trust.

You do not need to seek permission before reproducing any of the material in these units or on these pages and the unit plans may be reproduced and altered at will.

ALL we ask of you, is that yous that you let others know about them and that you acknowledge us on your facebook page.  Thats it!


ALl the work is done, just print off and use or use directly from online.

Plenty of variety of tasks for different learning styles and really easy to understand.

  Check out the NEW Settlement Unit Here >>>>>
There are some interesting differences between the settlement of Rēkohu and the settlement of New Zealand. On Rēkohu, the Europeans arrived before the Māori, but after the Moriori. Have a look, its fascinating and students are genuinely intrigued by it. This is something completely new for them and gets them away from the 'same old stuff' that some teachers tend to teach for their Treaty topics. Don't forget; you can also download the fully workable MSWord or PDF version for each unit plan and unit-plan template, for FREE. That's right! No tricks and no gimmicks: absolutely 100% FREE.
