The first of a series of resources for teachers are now available from our Resources page:

Initially for primary teachers, the resources comprise information sheets and follow-up activities for each topic.

  • ‘Daytime Moon‘ encourages safe viewing of the Moon during school hours. Discover why we can see the Moon in the daytime, and where to look.
  • Lunar Eclipse‘ shows how amazing Earth’s shadow really is, and has suggestions for observing the lunar eclipse in October. This is our last chance to see a total lunar eclipse in New Zealand until 2018!
