Hi LauraDeCarlo,

There are a few approaches you can take. Visits to the library and reading from the recommended list (either from the school's website, the library itself, or scan these suggestions: http://www.avon.k12.ma.us/librarymedia/100bookstoreadmiddleschool.htm).

Online, the grad students at University of Southern California came up with this website to help students of varying grade levels and in all subjects: http://sosclassroom.org/

You can also take them to museums to inspire them, like the Tech Museum in San Jose (http://www.thetech.org/) or take them to see the Redwoods and let them investigate further when they get home.

Good luck!

Hi Laura! I don´t know if this will help but one of the subjects that often gets overlooked is Algebra. To give the kids a bit of a break, have some fun and yet grasp the concept of Algebra, I would suggest you take a look at www.dragonboxapp.com Loads of very good reviews.
Best regards
