This guide is designed to provide ideas for engaging students in learning activities while schools may be closed for COVID-19. The activities listed are intended to help keep our students intellectually active while they are at home. The activity ideas do not represent the first level of instruction that occurs in our schools. Best practices for first instruction will occur when students return to school. The activities and tasks that students complete at home will not be used as assessment or counted toward part of the students’ grade. Families should review the list below (originated by Howard County Public Schools and adapted for use by Denver Public Schools) and select options that are relevant, accessible, and age-appropriate.
