  • This fun summer learning activity sheet is full of hands-on activities and experiments, interactive games, reading and writing activities, educational videos, and podcasts.

  • Keep your kids learning all summer long as they get outdoors and continue to practice their reading, writing, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.

Accompanying Teaching Materials
Teaching Tips


  • There are a number of ways to use the activity sheet as a game, including Bingo, pin the tail on the donkey, and Tiddlywinks.

  • Kids may especially like playing the habitat game to learn what types of animals live in different environments.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Your kids will need access to the internet and a device to complete some of the activities.

  • Some projects require materials or outdoor space to complete.

  • You will need to come up with a method for selecting the activities.


  • After the urban heat island or trees activity, encourage your kids to plant some herbs or vegetables in pots, plant a native sapling, plant bee-friendly flowers, or visit a park and collect litter while you’re there to interact with nature and take part in a climate solution.

  • The podcasts could be a great way for kids to pass the time while traveling for summer trips. Have them keep notes about things that interest them and then have them research them further once they’re home.

  • The ocean acidification and thermal expansion of water experiments could be used prior to a beach trip or visit to an aquarium.

  • For days when it’s too hot or rainy to be outdoors, the digital games present a way for them to keep learning while on their devices.

Scientist Notes

This is a summer learning challenge and it contains fun activities and tool kits that will let 6th-8th graders lead in climate adaptation and mitigation projects such as tree planting, forest and soil management, recycling, and marine resources protection. On that account, this resource is recommended.


This resource addresses the listed standards. To fully meet standards, search for more related resources.

Supporting Standards

  • Science
    • ESS3: Earth and Human Activity
      • MS-ESS3-4. Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems.
    • ETS1: Engineering Design
      • MS-ETS1-2. Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
    • LS2: Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
      • MS-LS2-4. Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.
    • LS4: Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity
      • MS-LS4-5. Gather and synthesize information about technologies that have changed the way humans influence the inheritance of desired traits in organisms.
    • PS1: Matter and Its Interactions
      • MS-PS1-4. Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.
    • PS3: Energy
      • MS-PS3-5. Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.
  • English Language Arts
    • Speaking & Listening (K-12)
      • SL.II.6.2 Interpret information presented in diverse media and formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively, orally) and explain how it contributes to a topic, text, or issue under study.
