Worldwide Summer Adventure

Join us on a worldwide adventure, and let learning take you around the world.

With the summer vacation rapidly approaching, we know you can’t wait to relax by the beach, visit a far-flung destination, or spend quality time with family and friends closer to home. But, what if you could also travel the world and continue learning all summer long?

Have the Summer of a Lifetime with Discovery Education!

What is the Worldwide Summer Adventure?

In this adventure, you will be able to virtually visit museums, visit the tundra, and take a deep dive under the sea…and that's just for starters.

How Will it Work?

Every trip has to start somewhere, and this is the "launch pad" for your adventure. A number of summer experiences, virtual trips, and explorations are already live - so you can get started straight away. We will be posting new ideas throughout the summer.

How Do I Get My Students Started?

This Summer Adventure web page has all the resources needed to share with your students and their parents. We have included a parent letter, student bookmarks to remind them of their login to Discovery Education, and a passport for them to record their adventure.

These resources are available to all Discovery Education Streaming customers. If you are not currently a subscriber to Discovery Education Streaming, you can sign-up for a no-obligation free trial to access the resources for this adventure.
