If you're looking for things that you can download and use, this is the right place.

Not everyone has a graphic artist or illustrator available that can create images and graphics for each lessons. It's great to know that there are resources out there that understand our need and provide materials on a variety of topics that we can download, print and use. They are great as support for your lessons or for those times that you need to keep the children occupied as you prepare for other activities.


If you would like to try out one of the lessons from our Kidco Labs series, go to the Curriculum area and click on the series, then just click on the 'download sample lesson' button. The files are in PDF format and will require Acrobat Reader to view and print.
