Teachers Pay Teachers (aka TpT) was founded in 2006 by Paul Edelman, a New York City public school teacher, to provide a platform for teachers to trade lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations and smartboard activities. Since then, TpT has grown to be the “World’s most popular online marketplace for original educational resources with more than five million resources available for use today” with a community of over 7 million teachers using TpT last year.
Despite the name of the site, you don’t have to pay for everything you download from TpT.
Regular readers of our blog will no doubt be aware of the growing number of free animation activity and video conferencing guides we have available on the HUE website resources page.
What you might not know is that we also have an additional selection of STEM and STEAM activity sheets available to download from the official Teachers Pay Teachers HUE store which are, currently, all free of charge.
HUE’s TpT resources are perfect for school makerspaces, summer camps, projects, classroom teaching and homeschooling. For remote learners, most of the activities are also compatible with TpT’s interactive ‘Easel‘ feature.
With the long summer days stretching out before us, what better time to stock up on fun, educational materials to keep your own kids occupied during the holidays and beat the back to school lesson planning panic?
Check out a selection of some of our most popular resources below and please let us know if you use any of the activities by tagging us on social media or by leaving feedback in the TpT review section.
HUE Activity Guide #1: Global Warming
The Global Warming Activity Guide aims to help teachers set up and manage a stop motion animation project about global warming and climate change. The guides have been designed to target students in grades 3-7.
The free downloadable kit includes everything you need to get started in any classroom or after-school club, including: optional activities, resources, cut-and-color templates, a storyboard and an example video.
Global warming is a key topic in schools around the world and media focus will be on the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in November. This activity guide aims to explain the key issues in a way that children can understand and, in turn, communicate them to others.
The elements covered are:
- How global warming is caused
- The effects of global warming
- What we can do to minimize those effects
Use the storyboard template to plan out your own stop motion movies with HUE Animation Studio or draw your own comic strip. Perfect for brainstorming new animation ideas and creative project-based lessons right across the curriculum.

Fun with Fractions
These are the pizza cut-outs for fractions included in the Math Fractions Activity Guide. Designed to target students in 3rd-7th grade (7-13 years old), these resources aim to engage, inspire and get kids motivated about math.
