The aim of the resource is to provide teachers with the means to use climate change as a context for delivery of the New Zealand Curriculum (NZC). The NZC provides the framework for all learning in New Zealand schools, specifying the pedagogy yet allowing teachers to choose the context for delivery. Global climate change is of such importance that it would be irresponsible of schools to consider an education complete without its inclusion. The website Climate Change Data for NZ Schools, has been designed as a tool that enables teachers (including those who may be lacking in adequate time or knowledge of this context) to access data and ideas for teaching, that would assist them to incorporate climate change in their delivery of mathematics and/or science in the NZC.
