Looking for some summer fun to send home with your students or to use with your own kids? Here's a fun activity for families.
Rate Your Parks
One summer when my kids were all still young, we got the neighbors together and made a plan. Twice a week, we committed to a park day. We mapped out all the parks in a 15 mile area and assigned each a day and time on the calendar.
Then, I created a park rating sheet. Each child got a copy. As we visited parks, each child went home and rated them on various criteria.
At the end of the summer, we had everyone rank all the parks. I gathered the results. The park that won overall got a last visit from us all to celebrate with a picnic! Yippee!
If you try it out with your own kids, post your results below.
