Scibermonkey

This is a pretty nifty, colourful little collection of resources.

Resources are separated into different age ranges: 5-7, 7-11, 11-14, 14-16 and teachers with all of the ranges having different topics to select.

Sciber Monkey

For example, using the teacher section, there are 3 drop down menus for age of student, theme and then topic. This is the same structure if you went on the 11-14 page, but far less colourful!

Scibermonkey itself is very colourful and fun looking, especially to entice those younger into having a look, but then all of the resources are links to elsewhere – games, animations, BBC Bitesize information, diagrams to label. They are all interesting and useful, but each resource could be from a different website that isn’t quite as fun and colourful as the Sciber Monkey site. It is very easily searchable by keywords though, which is always a good positive!

Join the Pod

Home. Run by EDF energy, the Pod is another Citizen Science area. Last year they had a collective Bee hunting experiment going on (I think if you register, you can still download the activity sheets associated with it) and this year they are giving away packs for Energy Month in November and Waste Week in March. In January there will be a Big School’s Birdwatch which fits perfectly with Biodiversity! Download the year planner and register your school now!
