Discovery Ed Makes Learning Activities Free for the Rest of the School Year
Discovery Education announced this week that it's making hundreds
of daily activities free to educators for the remainder of the
2021–2022 school year.
The activities are designed for grades K–2, 3–5 and 6–8 and
are being released on a monthly basis. According to Discovery Ed:
"These engaging daily activities include Daily Fix-Its,
Background Builders, Writing Prompts, and more to address specific
learning needs. The monthly release of educator-informed activities
provide fun, engaging, standards-aligned instructional supports
that connect teachers across the country in a shared
experience of learning."
“The opening of the 2021-2022 school year was supposed to be
different. This year, parents, teachers, and students were all
looking forward to returning to classrooms that looked more like
those from the pre-COVID-19 era,” said Scott Kinney, CEO
of Discovery Education, in a prepared statement. “However, the
rise of the Delta Variant and various other factors have created a
high-level of uncertainty among education stakeholders. Across the
country, there remains a lot of questions about how educators will
navigate these complicated times, and by making these student
activities available, we hope to ease some of the burden educators
have been carrying so heroically since March of 2020.”
There are roughly 500 daily activities being offered at no cost to
details can be found at Discovery Ed's Daily Activities site.
