New The House that Jack Built teacher notes

Free comprehensive teacher notes for Years 1 to 10 available for download here.

These teacher notes are based on the new Aotearoa New Zealand Histories curriculum being implemented in 2023 and written by Defyd Williams, who was part of the Ministry of Education reference group for the curriculum.

The House that Jack Built helps students, at all levels, understand the four big ideas of the new curriculum:

  • Māori history
  • colonisation and settlement
  • the use of power
  • relationships and connections between people

These teacher notes use the artwork and the rhyme as stimulus to suggest activities and extension mahi as outlined in the understand, know and do strands of the new curriculum requirements.

For more information about the curriculum, please go to the Ministry of Education website here.

FREE courier delivery within New Zealand for all book orders over $100.
