According to Discovery Education CEO Scott Kinney, “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.”
However, the 2021-2022 school year continues to be marked by uncertainty. To support classroom teachers nationwide as they continue to teach in the COVID-era, Discovery Education announced it is making approximately 500 daily classroom activities available to teachers nationwide at no cost throughout the school year.
Available until June of 2022, these free activities are designed to be quickly integrated into instruction no matter where it is taking place. Providing inspiration and serving as a launch pad for teacher planning, these free resources are available in the K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 grade bands will be released on a monthly basis. These no-cost activities are organized to support weekly instructional goals and were created based on the most searched terms during each month of the school year.
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.
Educators who already have access to Discovery Education’s award-winning K-12 platform will find these resources pre-populated in the service’s Activity Center. For access and more info: Learn more.
