We added this creative activity to the May issue's stories and articles for students to complete at home. You can find the choice boards—and other activities we recommend for your virtual classroom—on the resources tab for each story, under the heading At Home Activities. Here’s our favorite choice board from this issue.

Watch our delightful new videos, with creative learning quests for your students at the end.

Share our special letter with families and caregivers.
This letter is packed with ideas for using the May issue of Scope at home. You can also share the letters from throughout the year to help families and caregivers enjoy the Scope Archives together at home. They’re located on each issue’s home page and come in both English and Spanish.

Check out our interactive story packages.
We’ve created interactive activities (as Google Forms) for some of our most popular articles and stories—plus our entire May 2020 issue—to make sharing to your virtual classrooms easier. See the full list of interactive articles here.

Join the community.
Our Facebook group for Scope teachers is a fantastic place to share ideas, find inspiration, and be supported. 

Send your students on independent reading journeys.
We know you want to make sure your students are reading, so we’ve pulled together a few story collections just for them.

Empower your students to document their experiences, using our special My History Project kit. 

Send your students on exciting quests to turbo-charge their learning.

See our new downloadable PDFs to make stories accessible for all students.  

As a special feature for remote learning, we’ve temporarily made our May articles and stories printable to share with your students. You’ll find them to the left of every article.
