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

Are you thinking, "How in the world am I going to keep these kids entertained for the last two weeks of school...?" So are we! To alleviate our end of school stress levels, we created The 10 Days until Summer Survival Kit. 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. We had such amazing feedback from our best seller the 12 Days of Christmas in the Classroom, that we decided to do a similar countdown kit for the last two weeks of school.

The kits included are:
Survival Kit 1- Summer Safety Day
Survival Kit 2 -Weather Day
Survival Kit 3- Germ Day
Survival Kit 4- National Parks Day
Survival Kit 5- Aeronautics Day
Survival Kit 6- Game Day
Survival Kit 7- Nature Day
Survival Kit 8- Summer Holidays Day
Survival Kit 9- Water Day
Survival Kit 10- Reflection Day

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. Kits are available for grades 1-2, grades 3-4, and grades 5-6. Each kit is similar, but differentiated to accommodate the skills and standards in the grade levels.   

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.
