Parents & Educators: It’s a challenging time for you too! So they created these challenges as an enriching but easy way for you to connect with students where they want to be: on YouTube, making videos, and being creative. Each challenge is one self-standing project with guidelines for students to complete on their own. Teachers: You can share these as an assignment or just for fun. The social justice and self-reflective themes connect with Social Emotional learning but also ELA, Social Studies, and Science.

Challenge 2:
Me My Strengths & I
