I wanted to share a science resource that I have just signed up for. It is offering free science for a year for a (quite large) number of people who sign up. It will consist of 6 topics aimed at 7-11 year olds.
The topics for the academic year 2015-2016 are:
Plants, animals, rocks, energy, astronomy and forces.
Each ‘mystery’ as they call it consists of a hands on activity and a series of videos and discussion prompts and should take 45 minutes per week with additional related work available.
The idea of a practical activity combined with videos and discussion really appeals to our learning style and I hope it is as good as it sounds.
