Learning is not something that only happens in the classroom. In fact, active inquiry and interest in everyday life and their surroundings is a powerful tool for student learning. The summer months are a time for relaxation, but it can also be a great time for further learning and exploration. This package includes 30 activity cards to engage summer learning. It also includes a list of other summer learning ideas, a reading record log, ideas for what to include in a summer learning toolbox, and a daily summary sheet template for daily writing and reflection practice.
