SLH: Science Stories

Our science stories are smaller collections of resources, putting the focus on key science themes, ideas and events. The introductory articles explore a major theme or idea and provide a gateway to related articles, activities and media. All of our classroom resources are based on the requirements of the New Zealand science curriculum.

Our Heritage Scientists -   You can understand how science knowledge and ideas change over time by looking at the lives and work of past scientists.  Each featured New Zealand scientist is revealed through a people profile and a timeline that lets you see aspects of their life and work, and how these fit into a wider science picture.

Strange Liquids -   Liquid is one of the states of matter, and viscosity is a property of liquid. Some liquids display strange behaviour because their viscosity makes them flow differently to ‘normal’ liquids.

Conserving Native Birds -   New Zealand is world famous for its unique birdlife. In this science story, we look at the issues surrounding the conservation of some of our threatened bird species.  New Zealand birds have evolved in isolation from other countries over millions of years. The arrival of humans in New Zealand brought many threats to these bird species, including the introduction of mammalian predators...

Earthworms - To most of us, one earthworm resembles another. Although earthworms do have common characteristics, species differ widely in their size, skin colour and in the roles they play in the soil ecosystem.
