Oftentimes when we think about projects for our kids, we seem to focus on elementary school age children. This leaves our middle school and high school kids to figure out what to do with their time while on summer break. There are things to keep the older kids busy, too. Let’s take a look!
100 Hands-On Activites
Hands-on learning is the best kind of learning. Sadly, as kids get older, the ideas for hands-on projects seem to dwindle. That’s why compiled this list of 100 hands-on activities for middle school and high school students.
I do want to include on caveat – not all of these activities are specifically geared toward older students. But often activities for younger kids are beneficial to older students. And, most are easily adapted. You could turn all of the planning and execution of the project over to the student (as opposed to a parent helping). You can also require more detail.
