These DIGITAL summer themed activities are great for the end of the year, summer school, or to help prevent "the summer slide" at home. Keep kids academically engaged throughout the summer with these fun, educational and paperless activities that can be used on Chromebooks, laptops, computers or iPads. I created this resource specifically for rising 4th and 5th graders.
