After a discussion that leads to the creation of a list of favorite summer activities, learners organize a summer carnival. A partial list of activities could include beach ball games, sack races, an ice-cream sundae buffet, and sidewalk chalk painting. Of course, lots of parent involvement would be needed. This would be a great way to bring in a new school year with your little ones. "The Short, Quick Summer," is the Arthur episode this lesson is based on.
