Thanks to a blog post by Kevin Hodgson over the weekend I learned that Common Sense Media has produced a 16 page guide to summer learning activities. The guide is a review of apps and games. The reviews are organized into three categories for young kids, older kids, and teenagers. Each app and game is rated according to the level of learning potential that it offers. You can download the guide here.

If you’re looking for some summer learning activities to recommend to parents, take a look at Camp Virtual from Common Sense Media. You could link to it on your classroom blog or print out a section to send home with students. And if you’re working at a summer camp this summer, Camp Virtual offers some good rainy day activities.
