7 Great Places to Squeeze in Summer Learning

by Lindsay Hutton

Summer learning doesn't have to take a lot of time or resources. Although structured activities are great, quick and easy lessons on the fly are an educational (and much simpler) way to squeeze in a quick math or science session. The next time you find yourself at one of these summertime places, turn it into a fast (and fun!) learning experience.

At the Beach


Collect and count seashells, estimate how far you think the tide will come up, watch your shadows throughout the day — the beach has tons of learning opportunities!

As you build sandcastles, talk about what sand is and where it comes from. Explore the tide pools and examine all the different sea creatures you find in there. You don't have to go to the beach with specific learning activities in mind — just observing your surroundings and talking about the different landscape and the animals that live at the beach is a great way to learn about the environment!
