PBS KIDS Utah is partnering with the PBS SoCal team to bring you Digital Summer Backpacks! These Digital Summer Backpacks feature an easy-to-download PDF booklet offering PBS KIDS educational resources, activities, recipes, suggested reading, and learning tips associated with a specific subject like math or science. The activities in each PDF booklet are fun, educational, easy to implement, and use materials found at home. New backpacks will be released each week through the end of August, and will include activities around a different core theme, such as science and social-emotional learning.
We know that plans for the upcoming school year are up in the air for many of you, and you are deciding whether to send your kids back to school or to continue distance learning at home. We want to help make teaching essential skills fun, engaging, and easy to incorporate into your everyday routines no matter what you decide about schooling. Our backpacks create opportunities that support a “school experience” at home. Above all, we want to help share that the opportunity to engage in high-quality learning is all around us and we hope to empower you to seek learning opportunities within our backpacks and beyond.
