This site offers lots of resources for teachers, see what is included below:

  • COMPUTER SCIENCE. Programming for real. Intuitive, simple icon-based programming language and tools that encourages solutions design using algorithmic problem solving.
    Example: Define an algorithm to measure and control behaviour and process.
  • SCIENCE.  Learning by doing. Support classroom teaching by using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 to collect real-time data to verify a hypothesis.
    Example: Carry out experiments designed to determine melting points – collect data samples with the temperature sensor and track and plot the results using the intuitive graphing environment.
  • TECHNOLOGY.  Actively engage students. Explore real-life application of technology to make analogies, identify relationships, predict outcome, analyze data and draw conclusions.
    Example: Explore design and functionality by building and programming the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 to carry out controlled actions.
  • ENGINEERING. From idea to working prototype. Engage your students in practical, open-ended engineering challenges and open-ended problem solving.
    Example: Carry out a design process, from brief through testing and analysis to creating functional prototypes that can be easily modified to achieve design goals.
  • MATHEMATICS.  Bringing numbers alive. LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 is an ideal way to explore mathematical problems for real, making abstract concepts tangible and concrete.
    Example: Calculate the wheel circumference of your robot. Then program the robot to move a specific distance using the rotation sensor feedback multiplied by the circumference.

The 123HUB is a FREE resource bank and teaching community for primary school teachers. It has been designed to assist teachers in finding good quality online resources. Our aim is to take the effort and guesswork out of finding the best online resources that are available for the primary school curriculum. All of the resources on the 123HUB have been hand picked by teachers.

 

Now over 2200 quality teaching resources available!

 

 Our featured theme for February 2019 is 'The Great Fire of London'!

London’s burning, London’s burning… On the 2nd of September 1666, after a long hot and very dry summer, the city of London suddenly caught alight, resulting in a blaze that raged like London had never seen before, or since. This was The Great Fire of London!

In this theme, we explore:

  • How did the fire start?
  • How long did it burn?
  • How much of the city was destroyed?
  • How was it stopped?
  • How did the fire change London?
  • How were people affected by the fire?
  • How do we know what happened?

We have 35 excellent themed resources that will provide answers to the above questions and much more besides. The resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations, art, displays, songs, games, audio clips and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will successfully underpin this fascinating and enlightening topic.

The Featured theme is updated monthly during the academic year. Watch out for our superb 'Healthy Humans' resources coming in March 2019!
