Educator Resources

All the projects are designed to be low on resources and technology free. These are developed keeping the learning outcomes of the specified age group in mind. We have attempted to make the projects engaging and related to multiple subjects and learning. Each of the projects is across approximately a week for about an hour a day, these can help in contexts without online-schooling options or supplement it.

In this section, we have added more detailed project samples with suggested extension activities and tips for teachers to use.

We intend for these projects to be adapted and contextualized to your context including age group, prior learning, alignment to curricular outcomes, language and learning context.
