Activity Suggestions From Janet Heed, District Superintendent

Dear Parents,

These circumstances we face are new for all of us. We understand that these days can be more challenging than a typical snow day. As teachers continue instruction via distance learning, we also realize need for other activities.

Looking at the positive…this is a gift of time that we would not have if we were all adhering to our regular schedule.

We hope to provide you with activities and information to enhance this time.

Engineer with Marshmallow Shapes

Develop engineering skills while constructing basic shapes out of toothpicks and marshmallows. Using marshmallows as the connectors to hold the toothpicks together, kids can create different shapes. Challenge children to create new shapes or build a car, castle or spaceship. The possibilities are limitless!

Museum Visits

Adults and children can tour museums together through Google Arts & Culture at https://www.artsandculture.google.com. This site enables virtual tours of The British Museum in London, The Guggenheim Museum in New York, as well as other famous museums in Seoul, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Florence, Los Angeles, Sao Palo, and Mexico City.

We’re here to support you and your children.
