Use the curiosity cards to spark student inquiry about New Zealand's rich bicultural heritage. Each card has:

  • an image of a New Zealand historic item, place, event, or person
  • fertile questions to inspire inquiry about the image and its wider story
  • a link to more related online resources to explore on the DigitalNZ website.
