Description

These are the original 10 Days Until Summer End of Year Countdown lesson plans.

This print or digital end of year countdown will save your sanity! When all of your text books and supplies are put away, this survival kit contains EVERYTHING you need to survive the last two weeks of school.

Each day includes lesson plans, activities, and printables for reading, writing, math, science, art, and additional fun activities that will be sure to fill the entire day. Many of these activities can now be accessed or assigned digitally through Google Slides.

We combined the perfect amount of educational activities and projects that will keep students engaged and excited to come to school until that last bell rings for summer break.

***Kits also available for grades 1-2 and grades 3-4.***

Here’s what's in our 10 Days Until Summer End of School Countdown Bundle:

  • Summer Safety Day
  • Weather Day
  • Germ Day
  • National Parks Day
  • Aeronautics Day
  • Game Day
  • Nature Day
  • Summer Holidays Day
  • Water Day
  • Reflection Day

Each day’s lesson plan includes:

  • a reading and writing activity with differentiated pages
  • a math activity with differentiated pages
  • a science or STEM activity
  • a variety of other fun and educational suggestions that match the theme
  • Teacher overview of activities

You will receive these digital resources:

  • A link to daily themed student work pages, digitally created in Google Slides

***Google slides graphic organizers have text boxes for students to type and occasional moveable pieces.

Please note: The digital activities are not meant to be assigned as stand-alone, self-directed student activities. The activities will still require teachers to provide guidance, instruction and direction prior to assigning to students. Please take this into consideration before purchasing.

To prepare for the 10 Days Survival Kit you will need some type of container to store each day’s materials.  We purchased 10 gift boxes from Amazon and glued the printable suitcase label on each box. You can also use shirt boxes, gift bags, or plastic bins.

The read-aloud books are not included.  Check out your local and school libraries. These books are just suggestions.  You can also choose your own books that go along with the daily theme.
