Free Teaching resources

ARKive Education

Check out this web site for great science and other cross curricular teaching resources.

There are sections for 5 – 7 (Key Stage 1);  7-11 (Key Stage 2); 11-14 (Key Stage 3); 14 -16 (Key Stage 4) and 16 – 18 (Advanced level).

Other resources on the site include video games and short video clips for education which can be used for supporting various topics.

I have used some of the teaching resources for teaching 1:1, groups and whole class teaching. For example, as part of our rainforest study and of endangered species, I have used the Key Stage 2 ARKive School Museum teacher plans for hours of cross curricular fun activities.  

Children find the video and games section good support for their homework.

Have fun.
