IntroductionSunSmart Schools AotearoaSunSmart Schools Aotearoa is a programme run by the Cancer Societyof New Zealand.The Cancer Society supports workplaces, early childhood centres andprimary,intermediate and secondary schools to be SunSmart.There are both risks and benefits from Sun exposure. In New Zealand oursunlight is very harsh as it contains high levels of UV rays. Skin cancers are themost common form of cancers in New Zealand. From an early age our childrenneed to have the knowledge and behaviours that will protect them from theharmful rays of the Sun. The Cancer Society encourages all New Zealanders tobe SunSmart and to 'slip, slop, slap and wrap'.The SunSmart Schools ProgrammeThe Cancer Society SunSmart programme in schools supports the findings of the Community Preventive ServicesTask Force.1 The Task Force recommends that primary- and middle-school interventions are put in place toprevent skin cancer, based on strong evidence of their effectiveness in increasing Sun-protective behaviours anddecreasing ultraviolet exposure, sunburn incidence,and formation of new moles.The SunSmart schools programme provides:***12website information for teachers,students and parents on how to beSunSmartCancer Society-approved guidelines onhow to make your school a safe place forstudents and the school communityhighly engaging resources for students,parents, teachers and le-School.pdf

SunSmart Teaching ResourcesThese four cross-curricular SunSmart teaching resources address why we need to be SunSmart, how we can beSunSmart, and how science and scientific knowledge can inform and underpin the SunSmart choices we make.The units cover the New Zealand Curriculum Levels 1–4 and aim to:a.enhance youth numeracy and literacy development and provide assessment tasks to assess theNational Standardsb.embed key science concepts and experiences in relation to the Sun, energy and protectionc.support the principles of SunSmart and the New Zealand Curriculumd.use different examples/contexts to ensure appropriateness to different ethnic groups(particularly Māori, Pāsifika and Southeast Asian)e.use Te Reo Māori concepts and language that will be woven into the resourcef.take an inquiry-based learning approachg.utilise the SunSmart Schools Website – www.sunsmartschools.co.nz, and www.niwa.co.nz3

Level 2 Unit OverviewOverview Planning ToolThe overview diagram explains how the lessons for Level 2 have been organised to scaffold the teaching andlearning experiences. The overview document can also be used as a planning document for teachers.By using the Comment tool on your Adobe Acrobat tool bar, you can make notes on your students’ progress ornext steps. You will find an example of how the overview can be used for planning purposes over the page.Science ExplorationsThese units include a number of science explorations that can be adapted/differentiated to suit learningexperiences and outcomes at any other level.Overleaf is an overview of the unit that shows the links between the curriculum,assessments, teaching and learning approaches, key concepts and ideas.KeyFront loading through different sources of informationFront loading through hands-on experiencesCHealthLiteracy4Synthesis: Developing new understandings and knowledge throughinquiryScienceScience ExperienceMathematics Mathematics Geometry and Measurement Number and AlgebraCurriculum Level 2 Unit Plan SunSmart Fact and FictionTechnologyMathematics Statistics

How does this make her feel? Can we put ahappy face next the mental/emotions (taha hinengaro)? No? So add a sad face to the board. Who does Sue have to play with? Is she included in her whānau’s games in the water? No? So what shouldwe add to the taha whānau section on the board? Sad face. How does Sue feel inside when they are all laughing at her and playing in the water without her? Happy/sadface in the taha wairua space? Who can tell me what happens to her friends who have been playing in the Sun? By the end of the song Sue’s hauora has changed. What should we now have in the four boxes – happy/sadfaces? How do the things we do (e.g. taking care of ourselves so we do not get sunburnt and sharing sunscreenwith our friends) impact on what happens? How does what others do impact on what happens? Discusspersonal responsibility for our own actions and the responsibility of others. All of these things help make us feel safe and secure, help us to grow and learn. They are like the four wallsof a house (draw/copy Hauora (Resource Sheet 1b) diagram for students to see and define four walls) whichare necessary to keep everything inside safe. Can we put the pictures/words above/beside the four walls ofthe house? Some things may go under more than one heading.Teacher may do this on the board or students to do in pairs depending upon abilities.Consolidation: Refocus on the grid and faces in each of the quadrants.Students draw the three most important things to them that help them to feel safe, grow, and learn.15

Lessons 1-2, Resource 1bHauora ConceptInformation taken from Health and Physical Education online: ellbeingThe concept of wellbeing encompasses the physical, mental and emotional, social, and spiritual dimensions ofhealth. This concept is recognised by the World Health Organisation.HauoraHauora is a Māori philosophy of health unique to New Zealand. It comprises taha tinana, taha hinengaro, tahawhānau, and taha wairua.Taha Tinana – Physical WellbeingThe physical body, its growth, development, and ability to move, and ways of caring for it.Taha Hinengaro – Mental and Emotional WellbeingCoherent thinking processes, acknowledging and expressing thoughts and feelings and responding constructively.Taha Whānau – Social WellbeingFamily relationships, friendships, and other interpersonal relationships; feelings of belonging, compassion, andcaring; and social support.Taha Wairua – Spiritual WellbeingThe values and beliefs that determine the way people live, the search for meaning and purpose in life, andpersonal identity and self-awareness. (For some individuals and communities, spiritual wellbeing is linked to aparticular religion; for others, it is not.)Each of these four dimensions of hauora influences and supports the others.Taha tinanaPhysical wellbeingTaha whānauSocial wellbeingTaha wairauSpiritual wellbeingDr Mason Durie’s whare tapawha model compares hauora to the four walls of a whare, each wall representing adifferent dimension: taha wairua (the spiritual side); taha hinengaro (thoughts and feelings); taha tinana (the physicalside); and taha whānau (family). All four dimensions are necessary for strength and symmetry. (Adapted from MasonDurie’s Whaiora: Māori Health Development.

Lessons 3-6Part One – Living World - Finding out about SunSmart AnimalsAs animals, humans need the Sun. Unlike other living things, we live in many different places and this means thatwe have to be SunSmart. Living things that are in their own habitats have adaptations that help them to shieldthemselves from excessive Sun or make the most of the limited sunlight available; for example, camels and polarbears. Humans also have adaptations that help shield them from the Sun.Today we are learning about animals and whether they live in hot orcold countries and how they protect themselves from the Sun.
