Welcome to PaperWorks

Paper is a versatile material - it can decompose in water, yet maps can withstand the weather. Even boat hulls have been made from it. Paper may be used as a fuel, or be made fire-resistant. It may be a carrier or a barrier or a filter. It may be made tough enough to withstand acid or soft enough for a baby's skin. It can be read and it can be worn as a garment. The list is endless.It’s hard to imagine what life would be like without paper. We all use it, in one of its many forms, each and every day.

PaperWorks provides UK teachers with a range of curriculum-linked learning resources. Each provides useful background information about paper and some useful ready-to-go lesson plans with online presentations, videos and project work.
