The Michigan Learning Channel (MLC) has announced its Summer 2022 program. The free eight-week program, which runs through August 14 encourages kids to “Learn, Do, and Explore” with literacy and math lessons, hands-on science and fitness activities, career exploration and virtual field trips.
MLC can be seen on digital subchannels of all Michigan Public Broadcasting television stations.
From virtual field trips exploring shipwrecks in the Great Lakes to videos showcasing amazing animals at the Detroit Zoo, parents can find all sorts of resources on the MLC’s website. Educational videos, fun activity books, virtual events and more are available to keep students, from preschool to 6th grade engaged in learning all summer long.
“Learning should never take a vacation,” said Robin Pizzo, WKAR director of education. “This is why the Michigan Learning Channel Summer Program is packed with fun and engaging STEM activities, literacy skill development practice and exciting virtual field trips. Families can encourage learning every day.”
Parents can download the Summer 2022 Activity Book for their children with three options for different age groups (Early Learners, Elementary, Tweens). There are also individual weekly packets available for download, centered around activity themes like “When I Grow Up” and “Shoot for the Stars.”
These guides include the educational materials that accompany video lessons available to watch online or on broadcast television channel 23.5. Many pages include QR code links to student-centered lessons for parents and their children to review together.
“The Michigan Learning Channel is also excited to bring students, educators and families together with our #VirtualSummerCamp!” Said Summer Godette, MLC engagement coordinator. “In addition to the television broadcasts and activity books, families can participate in fun weekly challenges and engagement opportunities by following @MichLearning on social media!”
