Practical Action home learning resources

Learning from home

Are you looking for activities that will engage your children aged 5-16 years whilst they are learning at home?

We’ve pulled together our top learning at home resources that we hope will inspire you and your children during the lockdown period.

  Visit the Practical Action home learning page
Each activity links to areas of the formal curriculum in the UK and gives your children the opportunity to learn about real world issues.

Our STEM challenges are our most popular activities as they engage children in developing their own solutions for real life problems.  For example our Floating garden challenge invites children to make a model of a garden that floats so that farmers can grow crops on flooded land. All can be used to gain a CREST Award, go to the CREST website to find out more.

We have developed home learning guides as guidance for parents and carers for some of the STEM challenges and will be adding more shortly.
