Free Resources for your Program

Many afterschool programs request resources and activities that can be researched online. With this in mind, here are some websites which offer a variety of reading, geography, science and math activities and resources for your staff and program participants. These sources came from a recent Washington Post article referenced at the bottom of this post. Happy Hunting!

This site, started by 10-year-old Emma Walker of Bethesda, has lots of reviews written by kids, for kids. It’s divided by age and author.
