Looking for engaging, educational and fun home-schooling activities?
Introducing ‘Science Fiction Station’: a bunch of themed mini-lessons for kids aged 9-12.
All done for you. This set of fun videos, with free, matching worksheets, is based on the kids’ Science Fiction novella Ilnoblet Elmer and the Alien Water Thieves by the author.
There are 10 videos. They’re called “mini-lessons” as they run for about 20 minutes each. In each video, the author, previously a primary school teacher, reads a chapter from the book, then demonstrates and explains the matching worksheet activities. Once each video has finished playing, the accompanying worksheet activities may take another 30-90 minutes to complete, so this could be your sit-down home education activities all done for that day.
With varied English, Maths, Science and Art & Crafts activities – including fiction and non-fiction writing activities, drawing, creating, numbers and research, lots of KS2 and even some KS3 (middle school) curriculum is covered. Scroll down to see a list of some of the range of activities.
Kids can read along or listen to the chapter and do the activities in online groups, with siblings, family and household members, independently, or with you – the more, the merrier! Suitable for ages 9-12, and even older kids will enjoy some of the more challenging stuff. Younger children don’t have to be left out either – they’ll have fun with these, with support from older siblings or adults.
