🧪🧑‍🔬 Science Activities At Home

In order to keep the students engaged with hands-on Science at home (or in the classroom), we have created a folder that specifically houses all of the Science Investigations across the areas of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Earth & Space Science that require little or no equipment. Here are a couple of our favourites!

🧪 Explore the Speed of Sound:

The aim of this experiment is to measure the speed of sound in air.

🧪 Recycled Paper:

One of the most commonly-recycled materials is paper – but how does it get recycled?

🧪 Building Dichotomous Keys:

You can come across a lot of cool plants, bugs or animals in nature. But what if you come across one you’ve never seen before? How do you figure out what it is? This is where dichotomous keys come in handy!

Using Spelling Lists with Dash!

Using Spelling Lists with Dash. Spelling Lists are a great content piece to use with the Dash game within EP to get students to practice this important skill.

“”What is not assessed is not taught”. This approach is very critical for deliberate teaching and learning and the IB language conventions tests are extremely useful for this – to assess the overall English language competencies of the class, give individual data-driven feedback and construct future learning goals. I am a big fan of the said module.

I assigned the same to 2 sections of grade 6 and then converted it to a competition. My student engaged has peaked within minutes. I guess the word ‘competition’ always surges students’ attention and engagement”

EP Team Spotlight:  Adrian Banasik

Hi everyone! My name is Adrian. Ontario-based, I working alongside our Canadian team to build awareness of Education Perfect across the country.

Most of my time is focused on supporting the district school boards across Canada (some of which can have up to 250,000 students!), working alongside teachers as they explore our platform for the first time and building long term relationships within the school.

Working at EP is a blast. We’re learning something new everyday, either from the team or our customers.

In my spare time I enjoy playing hockey, reading, lifting weights, and – if I’m lucky – finding time to play some StarCraft.

If you’re Canada-based too, I’d love to connect with you soon!
