Free Sizzlin' Summer Fun

Summer fun doesn't have to cost a penny! With internet access, virtual trips are easy and educational. Click here or here for cummulative sites that take the guess work out of finding virtual field trips. How about a science related field trip from Nasa? With an election year in full swing, visit the White House through a virtual tour. Whether looking for virtual field trips of museums or national parks, there are so many wonderful places to visit through the world wide web. 

Two sites that encourage summer learning, as well as fun, are Storyline Online and Starfall. Storyline Online uses actors and acresses from the Screen Guild to read childrens' stories, and illustrations look just as wonderful on-screen! The site also has correlating activities. Starfall is a favorite of many children, parents, and teachers because it uses games to reinforce reading and writing skills. Both are excellent sites for ESL/ELL, also. 

Keep students minds busy and travel the world with some free sizzlin' summer fun websites!
