Activities You Can Do At Home

There are endless learning opportunities that you can take advantage of over the summer!

Read for joy! Books, websites, blogs, comics, podcasts, graphic novels... the reading choices are endless.

Try non video games... puzzles (sudoku, crossword, cardboard) getting messy outside (be it a garden, a plant pot), artwork, hiking, creating in the kitchen, Lego, card games, writing, build/create something, build a fort, and of course...clean your room!

In addition to the list below, check your school’s website or teacher’s websites and blogs for activities to enrich learning.
