About

This page links to various Flash, toys and experiments that I have been playing with along with some worksheets for children.
I have been learning a bit of Flash on and for a while, I do not take it a seriously as SuperCard so the files here are not the professional quality found in the software section. But I do find flash a very useful tool for teaching in primary school, both for use by children and for making teaching tools for children. The worksheets are below the toys section.

Toys

Rommy Robot Rommy Robot
For Teaching beginning LOGO. Create a maze by clicking then use button to write instructions to move the robot around with LOGO.

Clocks A tell the time game at our school site, and Tell the time worksheets here.

Fraction wall Fraction Wall For teaching equivalent fractions. A clicakable fraction wall and a completion game.

Food Groups Sort the food into groups

Whiteboard try How the Night..An example of a text in flash to use with a projector to markup text with a class. Probably a total waste of time given all the great whiteboard application avalible, or even compared to using a word processor!

Most are for Flash 5 but some are Flash MX, the screenshots and instructions are for Mac OS, but should work fine on windows with the exception of keyboard shortcuts.
