Primary Upd8: Free Darwin 200 resources
A host of awards have been picked up by a project which helped make resources developed by the team behind the Primary upd8 website, run by the ASE and Centre for Science Education, more widely available.
As part of the Darwin 200 celebrations, ASE's Primary upd8 team worked with The Open University's Evolution Megalab, with support from the Wellcome Trust, to provide free Primary upd8 activities for primary school pupils.
Following this, Bedford Borough with Links into Languages worked with the Open University and the ASE, on their `On the Snail Trail' project, translating the ASE Primary upd8 materials into French, German, Italian and Spanish. The project has now earned the European Language Label Award 2011,the Spanish Language Prize and the Eurotalk Primary Education Language Prize.
The project provided a review of the science in the Evolution Megalab and Primary upd8 Darwin 200 resources, with regard to the Key Stage 2 curriculum, and suggested additional teaching and learning activities using the resources.
They made extensive use of these materials, trialling ‘snail hunts’ in school grounds where pupils undertook field research, data gathering and manipulating and recording their data on the Open University Evolution Megalab website.
The resource materials are downloadable from Evolution Megalab and on the homepage of the Primary upd8 website.
