Online Educational Resources for Youth

With the growing number of school closings across the United States in response to COVID-19, many of us are trying to figure out how to keep our young friends reading, thinking, and exploring. Although Tower Hill’s gardens and grounds are closed until further notice, we have put together a list of resources for parents and caregivers including dozens of botanically inspired at-home crafts, games, experiments, lesson plans, and activity packets to keep children of all ages entertained and engaged.
