    Magic Mirrors
    In this activity from our #CreatetoLearn Writing kit, children create magic mirrors and personal sculptures to explore the endless possibilities of the future. Visualizing what they want to be in the future helps children pave pathways to success. Explore all the art-rich Family Engagement Kits here.

    Celebrate School Principals' Day
    "Across the country, principals are calling students on their birthdays, dropping in on class video chats, and challenging students with social media spirit days to keep their spirits up while they tackle distance learning."

    Connecting with students and #Families to support them emotionally as well as academically is more important than ever. In honor of School Principals' Day on May 1st, we're excited to share these amazing examples of how Principals across the country are going above and beyond to reach their students. Thanks for all that you do, Principals!

    REPLY to Participate: How is your school or district engaging students in #AtHomeLearning during this time? Reply with an artifact, example, or concept to help foster new exciting ideas to keep connected with your students.


    STEAM into At-Home Learning

    #STEAM doesn't need to stay in the classroom. Help students and parents extend learning at home and beyond with these easy parent tips and activities!

    REPLY to Participate: What STEAM topics most excite your students? How have your students embraced STEAM learning in their education? Share an example of how these creative processes have helped your students learn more effectively.


    It's National Inventor's Month
    You don't need a ton of materials to be an inventor! Use this Recycle Inventions lesson plan and invite students to study Leonardo daVinci's drawings of flying machines. Then collect recyclables such as wood and foam to design their own invention made with these recycled items.


    REPLY to Participate: How and where did students find their recycled materials? Did you create any adaptations for this #LessonPlan? Submit some examples of student work to be considered for the Artifact Gallery.
