Free resources for classroom teachers

This is our special place – just for teachers – where you can download additional classroom resources for FREE!

We aim to support WA teachers by offering a range of resources that will support your student’s learning, or capture their interests.

You’ll find a range of resources here, from those that help you explore any of our ‘hot topics’ in depth, to ideas for quick classroom activities. You’ll also find some tips for recycling, facts and figures, and videos.

You may need to sign in to access many of these resources – it won’t cost you anything and we’ll be able to let you know when we develop new resources.

Make the most of your ED! subscription by downloading our free activities each week to support the feature topic and News flash column.

Activity links will activate the day before publication.
