Resources

Check out the resources below that have been written and published by other teachers and school group leaders. You are welcome to adapt or use any of the resources or ideas in your own classroom or after school club. You can filter the list of resources by curriculum related themes.

Find out more about the school groups’ activities and resources by visiting their group pages. Groups have explored the area around their own school, researching topics such as urban regeneration and local industry over time. Pupils have developed skills such as map reading and interpreting aerial photographs. Why not set up your own school group and share what is special about your own local area?

Explore a selection of Britain from Above photos on 7 curriculum related themes, Agriculture, Buildings, Industry, Leisure, Natural Features, Transport and Weather. These include images from England, Scotland and Wales specially selected to relate to all three curriculums and with useful caption information for teachers.
