IdeaPark is a collection of free educator resources and planning tools to support a skills based, co-constructed, learning environment through STEM for your early years to Grade 3 classroom.
IdeaPark’s educator resources are designed to support young children’s development of language, inquiry, problem solving, critical thinking, numeracy and teamwork skills, while building on their natural curiosity about the world around them. IdeaPark also offers professional learning opportunities that help build confidence in implementing high quality hands-on learning in your classroom.
Developed by our Let's Talk Science education specialists, these educator resources use an inquiry-based learning approach, and combine skill development with literacy and numeracy to encourage a co-constructed learning environment for you and your students.
“I use IdeaPark’s Webs of Wonder database of explorations and investigations, which focus on inquiry and fostering a child’s skill development. I find them to be exceptional resources to support my curriculum planning. I certainly recommend these outstanding resources to all teachers.”Rose BrophyTeacher, Newfoundland and Labrador English School District, NL

“I registered for this workshop because I’m starting a new grade level in September. But what the presenters gave me was a good understanding that these learning approaches will work with any grade level. I appreciate all the planning and organization that went into this day. I also appreciate all the great online resources available to teachers through IdeaPark.”MicheleBrant Hald, Early Learning Kindergarten Program, ON
“Rather than talking about how to do things, we actually DID things, like building. If I’m excited, the students will be over the moon!”Geoff KermanGrade 2/3, HWDSB, ON
