With school closures lasting through April in DC (at the moment!) during the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic, distance learning has become the new normal for families in our region and across the nation. Teachers are tasked with figuring out how to deliver lesson plans and classroom activities as part of distance learning. And, parents and guardians are trying to keep their children on track with their studies and educational growth.
Deep breaths! In addition to materials your school has provided, there are TONS of options available (for FREE!) online. We started to compile a list and wanted to share it with you. We will continue to update it as resources appear. So if you are looking to explore lots of lessons about space with NASA; go on a field trip to a dairy farm, ride roller coasters at Disney, or check out the beluga whales at the Georgia Aquarium; share a coloring play date with a friend; join an art tutorial session; take a dance class — there are lots of opportunities available to help us pass the time while practicing social distance.
