Everyday earth: All ages

https://www.everyday-earth.com/?fbclid=IwAR1YEa4oepgKqm8hwCHH2TDrYajH5bGMzDmjIrASXQiHFS34ky1AYkwcPiI

Earth Science

EveryDay Earth is a non-traditional learning program, in that it is based on location-based inquiry-based learning.  

Every day, kids that go outside and play in the dirt or roll in the grass are learning. They learn about their environment by interacting with that environment. By traveling to many places, we broaden the child’s ability to interact with many environments, and further expanding their potential to learn!

EveryDay Earth builds off this concept, as a location-based example of inquiry learning. Like a field trip, we take the user places, and interact with that place, in a manner of their choosing.

A NYTimes Article About How Westchester Teens are Getting their Coronavirus News: From Popular Meme Accounts

 

https://teens.lovetoknow.com/Teen_Journals_Online

We are living in a monumental historical time, and 100 years from now historians will be combing resources to piece together what life was really like during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.  Journaling can be your contribution to history, as well a source of relief and connection. Whether you see it as a blog or a diary, keeping an online journal to recount your day, or an event is one way to stay in touch with others, find relief from stress, or simply help you to reflect.

Alternatively, keep your own personal print journal! Journalling is generally a great stress/anxiety aid, as well as a way to preserve memories.
