With long-lasting school closures, and the entire school system thrown into unfamiliar waters by COVID-19, educators are doing their best to maintain business as usual (as much as possible). But with students having so much free time on their hands, it’s likely they’ve already finished much of what they’ve been assigned.
The students have done the worksheets, finished the assignments, and watched the online lectures. Finding enough meaningful STEAM activities during school closures, as you know, can be tricky. On the one hand, enough useful information and educational resources exist on the internet to keep one occupied for ages. On the other hand, there are countless distractions online and plenty of poorly researched, yet sometimes enticing, misinformation. The key is knowing the right place to be and where you can get the resources you need when you need them.
If you’re a parent or educator looking for something to keep your students from climbing the walls, or from becoming overly dependent on social media, it might be helpful to remember that “a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” In other words, combining educational activities with engaging content is an excellent way of maintaining learning during self-isolation.
