fact sheets, teacher guides, resource boards
Collections of beautiful content, links, readings and apps in easy to read one page documents. Here's the skinny on what we mean when we say Teacher Guide and Fact Sheet
Call it compelling content, call it great design, call it essential NZ information... just please don't call it a poster. Our Fact Sheets are beautiful summaries of core facts you as a teacher need to get to grips with a concept. Sometimes they are a PhD melted down to student level; sometimes they're a series of statistics that are difficult to gather together. Teachers use them myriad different ways from digitally as thing-links to hand outs as fact checks. Essentially they are timesavers - we've done the research for you and put it together in one, easy to read, infographic style, comprehensive, evidence based Fact Sheet. Fact Sheets are now available in hard copy should you choose to use them for a classroom makeover.

Every resource we produce has a Pinterest Board attached to it. At School Kit HQ we use Pinterest to discover new ideas and find inspiration for our next resource kit. Each pin is an idea that helps us get creative or try something new. Pins are saved to boards, keeping our ideas organised and easy to find. Each Resource Kit we produce has a corresponding Pinterest Board which contains a whole heap of extra ideas, content, research and starter ideas to take your teaching even further. Basically we've done the research for you and collated it together in one easy to see visual summary. Check them out - they're worth a peruse.
