*Study Guide – to help teachers and students with planning, record keeping and revision.
*Activities – 62 sides of copiable activities as the basis for a differentiated programme of learning

*Sourcebook – a highly-illustrated and diverse source of information, explanations and stories. The Sourcebook complemented the activities. Some activities were served directly by features in the Sourcebook. Other features help to set the episodes of the module in context. Some activities directed students to a specific page or feature. More challenging activities required students to scan more of the pages in search of the information they need.
*Teachers’ Guide – with notes on teaching strategies and technical information about all the activities
