Urban Patterns 2.2 at MOTAT!

MOTAT is currently offering a programme targeted at the Geography 2.2 Urban Patterns Standard.


The programme looks at how the population of Auckland has grown and spread from the settling of early pioneers, through to the golden age of the 1950s. The way that public transport has shaped our major roads and suburbs and how the World Wars and the post war boom impacted Auckland’s population are also discussed. With the Victorian Village and 1950s exhibition I Am The Last Tram, MOTAT is a great place to research this topic, and students are able to obtain information from a variety of different sources.

It is a half day programme designed to fit in with the usual bus tour field trip which this standard often requires. It includes a 45 minute tour of the site with a MOTAT Educator, a tram ride and a self-guided trail allowing students to learn about the Pump House and Electric Train.

The day is charged at our standard school rate – $5 per student, and bookings can be made through the MOTAT website.http://www.motat.org.nz/educate/school-visits
