Get online today for free teaching resources
Mind the Gap has launched its new-look website, offering a great selection of free teaching resources for primary and secondary school teachers. Mind the Gap is an innovative project which explores sustainability issues and encourages students to think about their own lives and communities.
Take advantage of our current special offer by trying out the resources then simply providing us with feedback. Once you complete the short online survey you will automatically be sent a free copy of The Curious Mind of Young Darwin, an FSC-produced book packed with hints and tips for young naturalists to explore the outdoors.
The Mind the Gap website has been refreshed and updated to make the activities really fun and easy to use. The activities are available free to all teachers and aimed at those with students aged between 8 and 12. Go online today to have a look or get started using them. The resources and activities support many school subjects including science, geography, biology, ICT, mathematics and citizenship.
Free resources and activities available online
Teachers who have already used the website have given some really positive feedback:
“Excellent activities with great resources.”
“Links well with topics used in school. It’s great to see students being encouraged to look at and engage with their local area.”
“I think this is an amazing resource, thank you very much indeed for preparing it.”
Working with schools across Europe, the scheme is being led by environmental education charity the Field Studies Council (FSC) in partnership with recognised experts in environmental education from Holland, Hungary and Bulgaria.
