Summer vacation is often a favorite time of year for teachers. It gives us time to recharge and gain the energy and momentum for the upcoming year. I hope my fellow teachers are enjoying their summer break as much as I am. Summer is glorious and relaxing and full of all fun things. But there is no summer break without a school year full of hard work. Today I want to share with you a wonderful new website called Legends of Learning. Legends of Learning will help your students to understand science concepts in a very fun way.
Legends of Learning is a science website with games and activities for children in grades 3-8. With more than 1000 games that cover more than 140 topics for kids, there is something for everyone. Kids can enjoy these games over the summer so they do not have too much summer brain drain. Homeschoolers can also use these science activities to learn more towards their curriculum goals. My daughter has been using the Legends of Learning games this summer to help boost her knowledge in science.
Teachers can feel comfortable using these games because they are based on the standards-based science curriculum. Each teacher will receive assessments and updates on the progress of each student in your class using the tool.
