Fun Learning Links

You can see subjects weave in and out of various activities throughout the day. When COVID first arrived, I began collecting so many links that people were sharing - fun ways to learn various subjects. And of course, I noticed that these activities didn't really confine themselves to ONE subject... they merged Art, and History, and Technology, and Math, and Reading all together sometimes.

So. While I encourage you to choose activities based on whether your child is interested or enjoys it, I recognize that sometimes we get panicky thinking,

"OMG, we haven't don't anything related to HISTORY (or it could be Math, or any other subject) in months!"  

This little (but growing collection) may help ease your anxieties about it all.
