In our 10-part series of teacher training, we will walk you through the topics and practicalities including transitions in Kide Lessons, pedagogical tips, questions, assessment, storytelling, children’s agency & preparation, drama approach, group management, adult’s role & home experiment, and scientific arguments behind the Kide-approach.
Why Your Science Lessons Should Have a Routine
To have a structure and routines that are always remaining the same will help the child to anticipate what is about to happen. This makes the learning situation safe for a child.
How to Adjust for Different Science Abilities in Your Class
When classes have mixed learning abilities, it's crucial to find ways to keep things challenging and engaging for everyone. Find out how, here.
The Best Thing to Say When a Child Asks Any Question
There's a very simple way to answer most children's questions that gets them thinking. What do you think it is?
How We Handle Formative Assessment

Group Management and Supplies
At the beginning of the story, the child runs in and goes straight to the new interesting toy. Is there something we could do here to help the child to come to the circle together?
Using Drama and the Arts to Teach Science
We use the drama approach, as it helps the child to pay attention and motivates them to get involved. Stories and play make the scientific phenomena easier to approach.
How to Control Classroom Chaos
Our aim should be active learning and a safe learning environment. Not smoothness and control.
