Join a learning adventure with Ruff Ruffman that will get the whole family involved! This page contains everything you need to create an engaging Family and Community Learning (FCL) experience using high-quality resources from The Ruff Ruffman Show. From a Facilitator Guide that gives a breakdown of the whole four-session experience to supplemental materials such as Family Journals, Coloring Pages, and Family Game Sheets, these resources will help provide a comprehensive learning experience for families in your community that will support the development of science inquiry and engineering design practices.
Family and Community Learning with Ruff Ruffman uses a variety of media resources from The Ruff Ruffman Show. You can find links to all the videos and games used in each section of the program in the "Support Materials" section!
Family & Community Learning is a model for multi-generational hands-on family engagement designed to support science and literacy development among children and families. Designed for use in community based settings, these resources include multi-session sequenced experiences that are built to be modular and flexible enough to be adaptable to the wide variety of communities and contexts that they might be used in. All of the resources come packed with full activity plans, supporting materials for facilitators, links to related video and digital media, and additional take-home materials to support ongoing family engagement.
