PYP Agents e-inspection service

Thank you for requesting e-inspection versions of the PYP Agents series of books. Extend Education’s e-inspections are online versions of print publications that you can access for up to 14 days. Your unique school URL can also be shared with colleagues at your institution. 

The ant tunnel inserts (shown in the right-hand column below) are illustrated, fold out pages found halfway through each book. The PYP Agents recurring character, Nat the Ant, appears in the ant tunnel, to summarise the text so far and motivate, encourage, and focus the readers’ thinking for the second half of the book.

PYP Agents is also supported by a Teacher’s Guide, lesson plans, editable worksheets and much more – all of which are completely free to use. You can find all of these free materials here.

If you have any questions about the PYP Agents series, and want to find out about discounts and offers unique to your school, please contact us at
