Engaging Educational Activities for At-Home Instruction

Any parent who is now watching long days turn into long weeks with kids confined at home can appreciate the importance of engaging, interactive activities! Teachers and parents who provide fun, instructional projects and high-energy options are helping not only their students, but entire families focus on positive learning and growth. Here are a few activities to try with the elementary school-aged set.



  • For older elementary students, this site provides cool maker space projects. There are 10 different engineering projects that don’t require a lot of complicated materials and include anything from building your own wind-powered car to making your own harmonica. 



  • More kitchen math ideas can be found on this site, including a bunch of “conversation starter” questions that will help kids think mathematically. 



  • These indoor games burn energy and counteract cabin fever.
