The Children’s University of Manchester presents an excellent opportunity for The University of Manchester to share, with the wider community, and particularly primary schools, the excitement of the knowledge created through its pioneering research activities and teaching and learning practices.
Resources include online interactive learning materials for use on whiteboards or PCs; video clips which will bring the University to your desktop; downloadable resources and educational games. Content will be aligned with, and complement existing Key Stage 2 web-based learning resources.
My kids had a really fun time with this site! There are sections on the body and medicine, energy and the environment, ancient Egypt, Earth and beyond, teeth and eating, micro-organisms, the brain and senses, textiles and words.
Note: The site relies heavily on Macromedia Flash to provide interactive learning environments. Flash player 8 or above is necessary to play the interactives.
I was looking for Geography and History resources when I came across School History. I have not looked through it all because there is simply SO MUCH on the site but it looks quite AMAZING, ma shaa Allah. There are lessons for 4-year-olds (pre-K) to 18 year-olds (A Levels, I believe). The site also has games, puzzles, downloadable materials and reviewed internet links.
And yes… of course it’s FREE. Need you ask? :)
I heard a thudding sound while I was making wudhu for `Asr prayer. Concerned that it would wake Bear up, I rushed out. I saw Marz sitting on her stool, thumping a heavy baseball bat on the floor.
I was about to scold her when she said in a somewhat pre-occupied way, “You know what Ummi?”
“If I met Fir`awn, I would CLUB him with this baseball bat!”
Alright… carry on then!
