Summer Brain Gain: Supporting Continuous Learning

Resources to keep kids learning and engaged.

Summer Brain Gain

Summer Brain Gain

Summer is a great time for students to flex their mental muscles, stretch their creativity, and their spirit. Students and families may take time to plant a garden, read a book just for enjoyment, invent something, or start a personal journal. Use the learning links to visit the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Grand Canyon, Machu Picchu, or the Great Wall of China. Whatever students do to continue their learning is valid and effective.
