SELF-LED ACTIVITY RESOURCES
All of our self-led resources are free to download; however, a donation per download is appreciated.
These resources are aimed at teachers and group leaders who wish to make the most of any self-led time and help develop key skills such as problem solving and team work. They are a helpful starting point for any pre-visit classroom time, and can be used separately or as a complete set.
Teachers and group leaders may also download the Teacher’s Handbook which gives answers to the sheets and provides overview notes of the activities to help further develop learning.
The resources are designed for children and young people from KS2-4, and are themed for different memorials/topics:
The aim of the resources is to enhance school/group visits by encouraging self-led learning and helping to develop key skills such as problem solving and team work. Teachers wishing to receive an answer sheet for the Symbols Bingo page please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
