A Journey through the Waikato War explores the landscape in which the historic events of the 1860s Waikato War took place. Considered to be the defining war of the New Zealand Wars, it began with the invasion of the Waikato by the British Army in 1863.
Your challenge is to facilitate a journey that allows your students to explore, acknowledge and reflect on their experiences, and to draw from them the meaning and significance of the Waikato War and how it will be remembered by future generations.
