Whether you take our artificial intelligence (AI) path or choose to craft it yourself, we've got you covered. Your lesson. Your choice.
It’s simple, really.
The 5 Minute Lesson Plan lives up to its name.
Developed alongside Teacher Toolkit, it uses some clever, cognitive science stuff to help you streamline your thought process.

Embracing Artificial Intelligence
Are you ready to level-up your lesson planning game? Well, hold onto your hats…
We've integrated some seriously smart AI technology to help you generate fully-fledged lesson plans. Follow the AI path and enter a topic, subject, lesson length, and year group, and our tech will whip up a plan that you can edit. It’ll be so good, you'll think it came from your own brain...but with less coffee required!
So, what are you waiting for? Give it a try and see what AI can do for you!
1. Create with AI
Give some key details about the lesson and any additional context to help the AI get to work. It’ll add some clever tags in for you too.
2. Auto-magical AI
The super-clever AI will generate a fully- fledged lesson plan for you.
Check out the plan and tap on any section to change the text and add any personal touches.
1. Create manually
Open up a fresh plan — ahhh, a blank canvas. Add a few tags to help you find it later on.
2. Brain dump
Let the template be your guide, Sensei.
It tells you what to put and where, so you can focus on the important stuff.
Just tap on a section to start adding notes
3. Save & Share
You’re done? Already?!
(Of course you are, this takes 5 minutes.)
Download your lovely lesson plan as a 1-page PDF, ready to print, email or share however you like. See? Simple.
Now… what to do with all this spare time…?
Unfuddle your brain
So, here’s the secret… it’s um, science.
(And a bit of magic, but mostly science.)
The 5 Minute Lesson Plan supports cognitive thinking and structures your thought process.
Put short, it breaks down your super-complex teacher-thoughts into bitesize, digestible chunks.
Arranging your thoughts into an order that makes sense — it combines everything into a beautiful visual, so you can see your lesson as a whole.
Goodbye, lesson anxiety
