CHALLENGES:
These challenges are available to help students expand their explorer knowledge. They are CHALLENGES and DO NOT need to be completed. However, for each completed challenge that includes all the information asked for, students will receive a special prize.

CHALLENGE 5

SCREEN-FREE DAY CHALLENGE:
* We all need a little less time in front of a screen: television, computer, cell phone, tablet, etc. Choose a day to go completely screen-free with your family, this can happen one time, or if you can, pick one day during the week that you can make screen-free forever!!! Mrs. Morissette and her family have been doing screen-free Saturdays since last January 2019. The only item that Mrs. Morissette allows is her cell phone to take pictures of the fun activities her family does in place of watching a screen!!
