Track your journey on your very own map

To help tamariki track their own journeys around the motu, we’ve designed a map, where they can mark off places they’ve visited – either over the holidays or travelling by book. This can be used individually or in a classroom and library setting.

Download the map

Keep checking back here for new activities to run alongside your 2022 challenge.
