‘Summer of Learning’ Makes Education Fun!

Join us May 31 through Aug. 20 for our “Summer of Learning,” a summer lineup of educational programs on our CREATE Channel, available free over the air and through some cable and satellite providers.

Beginning Monday, May 31, at 9 a.m., Camp TV brings the summer camp experience to kids in their living room. Broadway performer Zachary Noah Piser plays the head counselor who guides campers as they learn through play. Each episode features a hands-on activity kids can do at home. Additional activities and resources are available at pbslearningmedia.org/collection/camp-tv.

Following “Camp TV,” the fun and engaging series Let’s Learn offers two hours of exploration beginning at 10 a.m. This series helps build foundational skills that are critical for kids, using interactive lessons and virtual field trips. Additional support materials for this awesome new series are at pbslearningmedia.org/collection/lets-learn.

After “Let’s Learn,” older kids can watch the documentary series Eyes on the Prize each day at noon. In 14 episodes, “Eyes on the Prize” recounts the fight to end decades of discrimination and segregation. It is the story of the people who, compelled by a meeting of conscience and circumstance, worked to eradicate a world where Whites and Blacks could not go to the same school, ride the same bus, or participate equally in society.

Then, beginning at 8 a.m. on July 19 and running through Aug. 20, students preparing to enter grades K-6 can tune in for Classroom Idaho: Boot Camp. This locally produced series features educators from across Idaho teaching students everything they need to know to be ready for the upcoming school year. Additionally, English language learning (ELL) courses will air on Mondays and Fridays at 10:30 a.m. For more information and an up-to date-schedule of Classroom Idaho programs visit idahoptv.org/classroomidaho.
