Card Games

This resource contains three ideas for card games involving Planets of the Solar System. It includes instructions for playing the games and the cards of the Planets with key facts about them. The games are Trump Card, Snap and Families. This activity has been provided by European Universe Awareness (EU-UNAWE).

Moonsaics

This collection of five Moonsaics have been created by the National Schools' Observatory, they consist of five different images of the Moon, separated into multiple picture panels per image, much like a "giant jigsaw puzzle". Students are challenged to assemble the completed images, offering them the opportunity to...

Mission: Starlight

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry,  is about protecting astronauts from the effects of harmful UV light.

 

Students can experiment with different materials to discover which blocks UV light the best and can...

Life of water

The resources in this pack detail a series of experiments teachers can run with their class when learning about water.  Each experiment is set in a space context and includes information for students and for teachers.

The short video clips can be used to support the activities in the teachers' guide.

Power for the World - Secondary Resources

This hands-on enquiry-based workshop enables students to explore renewable energy solutions in the developing world with a focus on wind turbines. Aimed at secondary students the main activity focuses on wind power and how it specifically can help solve the lack of electricity in rural communities around the world...

Packaging

This topic explores flat designs which can be folded and used to package food and drink. These Cre8ate maths activities provide rich experience of visualising 3 dimensional shapes from 2 dimensional representations. In Four Chocolates and It Takes the Biscuit!, students will need to measure accurately and construct...

Bridges and Structures

These activities from Cre8ate maths sets challenges which require pupils to be constructive, creative and think strategically about simple structures.

Working in groups of 3 or 4, students create structures from a single sheet of A4 paper, the tallest free-standing tower and the longest possible span between...

Tiling Patterns

Cre8ate maths provides these activities which investigate the tessellation of regular polygons and its application in construction. Initially students identify which regular polygons tessellate, providing the opportunity to discuss the interior angles of polygons and the sum of angles at a point, before looking at...

Supermarket Car Parks

These activities from Cre8ate maths explore the efficient use of space in car parks. These are two-dimensional ‘best fit’ problems which require logic and a systematic approach to find effective solutions. They give students the chance to devise and test out strategies using systematic trial-and-improvement...

Stretchiness

This Cre8ate maths activity draws on measuring stretchiness which involves the collection of real data, calculating percentages and experimental design. This resource models one way in which engineers use their knowledge of mathematics to investigate the properties of materials. Here students investigate the...
