Skype a Scientist
While not strictly for kids, Skype a Scientist would be an awesome experience for those particularly science loving youngsters. The service will match up families, classrooms and more with a scientist willing to Skype, answering those burning science related questions. Here is the schedule to Skype a Scientist LIVE!
Dav Pilkey at Home
Benjamin is REALLY excited about this one! Fans of Captain Underpants and Dog Man books will surely be excited at the opportunity to join Dav Pilkey at Home, as he offers up weekly prompts and engaging activities. Learn to draw beloved book characters, color, solve puzzles, and watch videos all from the comfort of your home.
Buttons & Figs
As you know, we are huge fans of podcasts. Buttons & Figs encourage kids to “think critically and express creatively through wordplay” with fun episodes, activities, and free worksheets.
You know TED talks for sharing ideas worth listening to. TED Ed is an extension of that idea, offering educational content paired with compelling animation to engage young people in learning about a wide variety of topics, from the Immune System to Underwater Tunnels, and everything in between.
PBS Learning Media
Long recognized for their educational and fun programming, PBS ups the ante by offering standards-aligned videos, interactive lesson plans, and more to help support schooling at home, with PBS Learning Media. Browse by subject or grade level. Be sure to check out the PreK-12 Resources for Emergency Closings page.
