Trainee/Student Teachers, Early Career Teachers – you’ve come to the right place! Here’s the lowdown on how Explorify works and how it can supercharge your science lessons by supporting children’s scientific thinking and talking.
Our Who is...? activities are designed to inspire children to consider STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths) as potential career choices by showcasing important scientists past and present. Read our tips on how to get the most from this activity.
When it comes to planning support for science, Explorify aces it, going beyond its own set of engaging activities and guidance to signpost excellent sources elsewhere, but what about that odd, unplanned, 15 minutes? Is an unplanned dive into Explorify ever a good idea?
Explorify has just published over 40 new activities which have been designed especially for children aged 3 -5 years old. The new Zoom In, Zoom Outs cover the different areas of the Early Years curricula across the UK and have been developed with guidance from a group of expert practitioners in the Early Years.
Mission Survive activities put your class's creativity to the test through fun, imaginative, hands on challenges. They can help reinforce learning, by creating first hand experiences of building their ideas and seeing how well they work.
Problem Solvers are the perfect activity for getting students to think critically and creatively in class, like scientists. Designing a solution to a problem will give your pupils the opportunity to explore their ideas and knowledge in order to address the challenge.
Encourage your children to use their sense of touch, hearing and smell to work out what's contained in these mystery bags! A tried and tested favourite with teachers, spark curiosity and debate with a selection of everyday objects.
