Summer is for lazy days at the beach, barbecues, baseball
games, picnics and the pool. It's time to unplug from busy school
year schedules, to relax, to get outdoors, to play.
Unfortunately, research by the National
Summer Learning Institute has shown that many children lose one
to three months of learning over the summer. So summer is also the
ideal time to encourage learning through hands-on, fun and active
fieldwork and projects.
