To help teachers across Russia participate in Science Week in Schools, the British Council, in partnership with the British Science Association, Astro Academy: Principia and the ENGAGE Project have created a special teaching resource pack.
The pack includes lesson plans, exercises and assignments, videos, suggestions for all-class discussions and useful links. The pack features lessons on the impact of 3D printing on society, aircraft design, the search for life on the satellite of Saturn and more.
Teachers’ Pack and accompanying student worksheets are available in Russian and English. The materials, as well as the certificates for participating schools, are available to download for free at the bottom of the page.
Accompanying videos with Russian subtitles.
Each chapter in the pack is accompanied by a glossary with definitions for key vocabulary, prepared by the English language learning digital platform, Lingualeo.
Sets of terms will be useful to teachers of foreign languages, those who are going to conduct lessons in English, as well as students - in preparation for classes.
*Glossaries are accessible after registration on the Lingualeo website via the links below. (Registration via email or social media is available.)
