Summer is here! Or at least it will be later today when thousands of Oklahoma City school kids leave their classrooms for a two-month break.
But summer break doesn’t have to be a vacation from learning. Even if your kid isn’t enrolled in an organized summer program or class, there are plenty of educational opportunities for the whole family.
A few things my family will do this summer:
* Visit the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History at OU to see SuperCroc, a 40-foot long creature that lived 110 million years ago.
* Start a new tradition of going to the library. Those trips to Barnes & Noble are adding up but library books are free! And there are plenty of activities there too this summer.
What are your summer plans? What ideas do you have for fun yet educational activities that don’t cost a bundle?
Comment here or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll share some of your responses.
