I would love to know a great public elementary school for 4th grade and middle school for 6th grade. We will be moving to Atlanta and want to hear your opinion for both public and private with tuition under $13,000

We're going with a Spanish immersion camp in July since our daughter's preschool is gradually shifting to Spanish immersion this year. We've got other activities scheduled too. Just avoiding the old idle hands thing.

Absolutely nothing. Let the kids kick back for a while. They just got out of school, but camping is a great activity too.

Camping!... The kids learn LOTS of things when we go camping - between learning about fire safety, surviving in the outdoors, nature, ...LOTS of things to learn there!

Camping, for our family. There's nothing quite like depriving your kids of tv and games for a week to live in a tent. From the obvious natural learning environment to self sufficiency, camping is a great outdoor educational activity.

Since I enjoy teaching ecology and earth scientists, summer presents hundreds of opportunities to explore nature close-up and also to take photos and make notes for next year.

for my teenager, a job is the best learning activity I can think of!

The best ones are the ones that enrich the learning in the classroom. We'll be spending plenty of days on the train and going downtown. We'll enjoy the museums, the high rises, and the history that only exploring a major city can offer.

For preschoolers I think water and sand play is very important. Gardening is also a great learning activity.

Anything hands on! Art and carpentry projects, swimming or other sports. My kids are required to read a new book each week because downtime is also important. Ask you local library for a summer reading list.
