Activities such as building a watering system using ‘ohe (bamboo) for backyard plants, along with other Hawaiian culture-based lessons, are available for free, keeping learners of all ages intellectually stimulated for hours.
In response to COVID-19’s impact on the delivery of community education programs, Kamehameha Schools launched a free educational resource webpage for summer learning and beyond.
Developed to ensure access to Hawaiian culture-based education opportunities as many learners embark on a new digital learning path, the resource webpage is home to over 100 Hawaiian culture-based activities and modules. Areas covered include language arts, math, social studies, science, ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi, Christian education, health and fitness, arts, coding, music and more.
Available to all learners and their families, the webpage also features various ‘ohana engagement activities that include step-by-step instructions for hours of fun from the comfort of one’s home.
The resource webpage is available on both desktop and mobile devices and can be accessed by visiting ksbe.edu/education/learn_at_home/.
