We have used the wonderful illustrations in books written and designed by Marie Neurath in the 1950s and 1960s to make some slideshows and worksheets for children, teachers and parents.
We have developed these resources with teachers and children.
We have grouped these resources in ‘packs’ under themes that relate broadly to the national curriculum. Each pack contains a slideshow (.pdf to download to a computer, and .epub for tablets) and a related worksheet that you can download and print out.
To use the packs:
- The pdf slideshows have some interactive features that won’t work when looking at the pdf on your browser. For best results, download the file to your computer and open it in Acrobat Reader. Get it here.
- On an iPad or tablet, use the .epub slideshow. Check if your tablet has an app that can read e-pubs. If using an iPad, it is likely you have iBooks already. Get it here.
For young children (Key Stage 1, reception–yr2)
Four packs explore the themes of growth, habitats, earth and plants.
For older children (Key Stage 2, yr3–yr4)
Four slideshows introduce notions of gravity, force, energy and density.
