Cover lesson plans for substitute teachers

Covering other colleagues classes can be difficult especially when it's last minute and not your usual subject area. 

For science, design and technology, engineering or maths - look no further, we have got you covered!

Below you will find engaging cover lessons plans ready to go so you can start your lesson almost immediately! They include a variety of topics and different durations to suit your lesson. All resources are fully editable so you can adapt and change as you see fit or use directly as is. From designing a sustainable aircraft to drawing patterns with tessellation or saving the planet one journey at a time. With minimal (if any!) preparation time and materials you really can be ready for anything!

Please do share your learning highlights with us on social media @IETeducation and if you have further suggestions for cover lessons that we can add here then please let us know so that we can help fellow teachers and colleagues.
