37 Free Educational Websites and Apps for Kids

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States, more than 55 million school children from K-12 were sent home to learn. Around the world, children in some of the poorest countries have lost up to 20% of their lifetime days in school during the pandemic.

It’s essential for every child to continue reading and learning, but even more so this summer after months of school closings and learning disruptions. That's why, from the beginning, Save the Children has been working around the clock to provide support and free learning resources to students everywhere.
