The Lesson in a Box - The Environment spans Computing, Design & Technology, Biology/Combined Science, and all also contains enrichment day activities.

  • Computing - Your Smart Greenhouse lessons are all about designing software for the greenhouse.
  • Design and Technology - Your Smart Greenhouse lessons are all about designing for specific environments.
  • Biology/Combined Science - Your Smart Greenhouse lessons are all about factors affecting photosynthesis.

In developing this box we wanted it to be affordable, useful and robust enough for teachers to use again and again. The resources cover not only the KS3/KS4 (US equivalent - Grades 6-8/9-10) specifications but also personal development by encouraging pupils to view traditional STEM activities as having value across their curriculum.

The teaching resources included in this pack are, we hope, set out in a ‘teacher-friendly way, with sufficient detail to enable you to ‘lift’ them, photocopy them and run your lesson(s) with minimal fuss straight out of the box, and/or to edit and personalise the resources if you so wish.

Each lesson includes;

  • Technicians Notes
  • Lesson plans/Schemes of work
  • Powerpoint presentations
  • Workbooks/sheets
  • Software guides
  • Assessment questions
  • Example code

The activities in The Lesson in a Box The Environment pack utilise the BBC microbit, the Kitronik Smart Greenhouse kit for micro:bit and servos and silicone tubing specifically for these activities. The advantages of the microbit are that, while being easy to use, it is feature-packed and it can be coded with languages that suit every ability level.

Also included with the kit is a large lifecycle of a plant poster, ideal for the classroom wall.
