What ELI is about + Publications

ELI will publish Earth-related teaching ideas, designed to be practical resources for teachers and teacher-trainers. These will be publicised on our blog site at earthlearningidea.blogspot.com.

  • We publish a new activity every two weeks.
  • Each activity is designed to create pupil participation for maximum learning.
  • Most activities require minimal cost and equipment. New ELI+ activities may require some basic school laboratory equipment.
  • Best of all, they are fun!
