With more than 124,000 school closures around the country affecting over 55 million students, National Geographic has consolidated its wealth of learning tools into a one-stop resource for parents and teachers of kids K-12.
[email protected] is an online hub for learning and education resources provided by National Geographic. From fun activities like quizzes, podcasts and videos to science experiments, and even at-home classroom resources, there’s plenty available to keep your kids entertained during the quarantine. Plus, it’s free while schools are closed though that’s subject to change when schools reopen.
“Juggling your work life and your kid’s school life is hard enough. When those two worlds collide, as they have for so many families, it adds so many layers of challenges,” said Rachel Buchholz, editor in chief and vice president of National Geographic Kids. “That’s why our goal here is to keep kids of all ages educated, entertained, and inspired, helping them become global stewards of the future.”
The website has three categories full of activities, each indicating a level of K-12:
