  • Scholastic - With the new Scholastic Learn at Home, every day Scholastic's website will offer a new mini-lesson that includes a story, a video, and an activity. The lessons are grouped into four age groups: pre-K and kindergarten, Grades 1 and 2, Grades 3 to 5, and Grades 6+. LEARN MORE
  • PBS KIDS Daily Newsletter - While there's always child-friendly content at PBS KIDS, the organization is going the extra mile during school closures. It's creating a newsletter that'll give you ideas for learning activities at home. A new newsletter arrives every weekday. LEARN MORE
  • Circletime - At Circletime, educators host free, interactive videos in their areas of expertise. You can find video lessons on everything from yoga to family cooking to sing-along songs. LEARN MORE
  • Club SciKidz - Every day on their blog, Club SciKidz will post a different simple science experiment for kids and parents to do at home. The first, for example, uses the scientific method to determine what household ingredient works the best to clean a dirty penny. LEARN MORE
  • Math Games - You can sort through these always-free math games by grade level, or by skill. There are also free worksheets you can print out. LEARN MORE
  • HippoCampus - For older children, this site offers 7,000 free videos for students in middle school through college. You can check out the playlists in one of 13 subject areas, or you can browse by collection, like the NASA collection of science videos. LEARN MORE
  • Mystery Science - Mystery Science combed through its past lessons and pulled the ones that were easiest to reproduce at home. Activities range from five-minute mini-lessons (including one called "How Does Hand Sanitizer Kill Germs?" which seems appropriate right now), to full, 45- to 90-minute classes with hands-on experiments. LEARN MORE
