    I found the Exploring Science site recently and there are cover lessons available to download as well as some worksheets (lower ability).

    Perhaps someone from your department could photocopy any resources required from the Teachers Guide that are mentioned at the beginning of the lesson plan.
    Hope your op goes ok!

  3. Can I state the obvious?
    Why are the lessons being covered for 3-4 weeks? Surely your school should get a specalist - failing that a person/teacher to teach the lessons for 3-4, without then, the need for you to set coverwork? After all, you are going to be signed off sick and should not have to set work for your classes in that case. Or is supply a dirty word in your school. As a parent, if I found out this is what is going to happen, I would be absolutely furious that my child is not going to be taught for 3-4 weeks.
     
  4. I would love for the school to get a specialist for my time off. Unfortunatly that is not the case, so that is why I want to try and put some decent work in front of the class. There is only so much that an "interesting" class will do with home produced W/S.
