Summer - Teacher Resources

Integrate the study of summer into your classroom curriculum; it's every student's favorite time of year. Summer brings heat, extended daylight, and fun. Topics of study include biomes, habitats, weather, and more. There are activities for every subject: mathematics, science, social studies, and art. We have slideshows of our favorite summer reading picks, math worksheets to keep your students engaged over the break, literature guides for summer-themed books, references about the history of summer Olympic games and school vacations, and more!

We've pulled some of our most valuable summer resources into cross-curricular packets filled with fun summer activities and summer learning guides perfect for preparing for the next school year. Enjoy!
