Activities

Each activity is available in 2 formats; either for use by individual students working on a PC or for a teacher or groups of students using an interactive whiteboard. This range of resources will continue to build over time.

Some of the activities will make use of our online editing tool that does not require film clips to be downloaded. However, you may prefer to download the clips and replicate the activity using your own editing software.
