In addition to remote learning, kids need enrichment that is educational, recreational, and fun. Here are a few activities that might be helpful to include within students’ scheduled breaks from virtual classes.

As teachers, homeschool educators, and parents are planning for remote learning this fall, the following activities might be helpful to include during scheduled breaks and time-outs from students’ academics studies. (Scout leaders may also be able to offer these activities for boy scouts and girl scouts to support their badge achievement.)

Consistency helps students focus, so start with a daily schedule. Teachers often begin the school year with a great deal of structure, because kids learn most easily when they know what to expect. With remote learning, a schedule also allows parents and other caregivers to share duties or to hop on a business call. By building breaks into a schedule—and giving choices and a range of activities—parents can tailor plans to meet their children’s individual needs. Try the activities for elementary students below, organized into virtual field trips, recreation & fitness videos, and educational videos.
