New Zealand Childhoods

Jeanine Graham, World History Commons | Mar 12, 2021

The New Zealand Childhoods (18th-20thc) teaching module explores how colonization shaped childhood in New Zealand both among Indigenous populations and those of European descent. This World History Commons site offers an overview essay on the colonization of New Zealand and the policies introduced by Great Britain in the 18th and 19th centuries that affected the way children were raised and their engagement with and exposure to Indigenous cultural practices. Resources on this site are adaptable for high school and college-level world history courses. These include lesson plans, teaching strategies, discussion questions, and essay prompts relating to twelve primary sources.
