Activities

Shutterbug Science provides a collection of free activities and educational modules for teachers and parents. Many of these activities and modules have been developed in collaboration with experienced educators and are designed for integration into K-12 curriculum. All resources are in English, unless otherwise noted.
If you use these resources, please let us know by completing a short survey (coming soon!). We’re always looking to improve and would love to hear about your experience. We also welcome new collaborators who are willing to add their own modules to our growing collection of resources. If this interests you, please get in touch with us to learn more about how you can share and post your ideas!
