This page provides links to an eclectic mix of thought-provoking and information-rich websites relevant to life-based learning.

Many of them are websites with teaching resources for immediate use in the classroom. Others were particularly helpful when putting together this website.

All of them demonstrate an interest in children being involved in life-based learning.
