This may be of interest to home educators. (I know there have been many more than usual.) It's a new K–8 Activity Guide from the
Smithsonian in collaboration with USA TODAY.

“Summer Road Trip” is a new 40-page activity guide that uses the vast collections and expertise of the Smithsonian to take learners on their own summer “road trip” of discovery. Through hands-on activities, puzzles and games, students will explore topics in STEM, history, and the arts. The guide features bilingual Spanish/English language content.

“Summer Road Trip” uses the theme of a road trip and iconic collections from Smithsonian to connect activities across disciplines. Learners are encouraged to let their minds wander and embark on a road trip to the Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C., making stops along the way to visit an artist’s gallery, explore local cuisine, learn about the local wildlife, and much more.

Here's the Summer Road Trip information page which includes a link to the activity guide.
