Planning a Project Based Learning Summer Camp

If your school offers summer programs for students, I highly recommend planning and implementing a summer project based learning camp. Beat the "summer slide" with motivating projects that include 21st Century Skills and curriculum standards. The Buck Institute for Education has a list of project based learning units that can be found on their website. If you're new to project based learning, BIE provides templates for planning your project. So, take the plunge and host your own project based learning summer camp.

Plan your own project based learning summer program. Keep students learning in a fun way with high-interest activities with 21st Century Skills and core standards.
