At The Beach - a learning resource

As an island nation our love for the water hasn’t changed over time. What we wear to the beach in and on the water however has changed a lot. When you visit 'At The Beach' this summer at the New Zealand Maritime Museum, your students will have the chance to explore how differing social, cultural, and environmental influences have changed what we wear at the beach. We will focus on materials used to make different swimming attire and will involve testing and exploring materials and items that could be worn or used at the beach or in the water.
