Te Ara - The Encyclopedia of New Zealand

The wonderful Te Ara website has had a redesign, and it is now easier to use and even clearer than it was before.  Use Te Ara if you are looking for New Zealand information.  There are lots of categories to choose from where you can begin your search or you can search the whole site.  Te Ara is the main place to go if you are looking for the kind of information you would look for in an encyclopedia.  It is great for historical information, for information about birds, animals, the people, places and culture of New Zealand.

There are videos, images and sound clips.  There is also a very cool place where you can find stories about things from New Zealand's past.  I loved this one about a scary experience with a bull

Te Ara is one of the best homework resources around.  Try it out, search for some things about Dunedin and see what you can find.
