There’s a lot of moms and dads out there homeschooling for the rest of the school year. I have a few links I thought were useful, interesting or just entertaining.
They aren’t in any order or grouped by age.
While the Porsche Museum is closed due to Covid-19 the carmaker has made quite a nice learning site for children from the ages of 8 and up.
Tour the site with the official site mascots, Tina Turbo and Tom Targa. They will guide you on the many adventures as you Discover, Play and Experience the world of Porsche. You’ll find designs and coloring pages as well as videos that talk about engineering and the making of an electric car.
Don’t forget to visit the Download area and get the directions to build your own Porsche car with a rubber engine or an air powered engine.
I’m fortunate to live close to the Gumbo Limbo Center which is a rehabilitation center for injured sea turtles and a protected area for endangered plants and animals. They have a nice activity site for kids to learn about conservation. Visit their site and download some snakes and insects to play with…yuk.
The Vatican Museum is one of the most extraordinary places I’ve ever had the pleasure to visit. Their collection of sculptures and paintings and palace rooms has been collected by the Holy See for centuries and they have opened their virtual doors to the public with 360 degree walkthroughs of their most popular rooms and artifacts.
Don’t miss the Sistine Chapel and the Raphael Rooms. I would say it is just like being there. Well, it’s not. Being there, is just like being there.
This site may require some patience. It takes a minute to load a 360 degree view of the most amazing art collection in the world It is definitely more for the adult art lovers among us. But it is a definite look and see.
This site has got to be the most fun ever!
My favorite section is Weird But True.
I now have the most random facts in my memory. I can’t wait for the next time we can all be together for Trivia Nite.
My last link for today is from Code.org. I can’t say enough about this site’s content. If you ever had any interest in how to make things work or just like cause and effect scenarios- you should start here. This whole site is a powerful motivator for all ages.
I would start here with the Express Course 2019 ‘Dance Party’ and then see what else grabs your attention.
Let me hear what you think about these links. If you have some favorites to share, let me know.
