Looking for off-the-shelf home schooling activities which are not only fun and engaging, but also truly educational?
Introducing ‘Science Fiction Station’: A free series of themed mini-lessons for kids aged 9-12, in videos and matching worksheets.
All done for you. The videos and worksheets are based on the kids’ Science Fiction novella Ilnoblet Elmer and the Alien Water Thieves by the author.
The 10 videos, or ‘mini-lessons’, run for about 20 minutes each. In each video, the author, who is an educator and a trained primary school teacher, reads a chapter from the book, then demonstrates and explains all the matching worksheet activities.
Included are varied English, Maths, Science and Art & Crafts activities – such as fiction and non-fiction writing activities, drawing, creating, numbers, research and projects. Lots of the KS2 and even some KS3 curriculum is covered (tween/middle school). Scroll down to see some of the subjects/activities included.
After watching each video, the accompanying worksheet activities will take another 30-90 minutes to complete, depending on your preferences and your child’s needs and abilities.

Kids can read along, or listen, to the chapter read by the author, then do the worksheet activities with siblings, friends, family and household members, and/or in online groups, independently or with you – the more, the merrier!
Suitable for ages 9-12, but even older kids will enjoy some of the more challenging stuff. Younger children don’t have to be left out either – they can join in, with support from older siblings or adults.
