Out Of School Activity

PBS KIDS Afterschool Adventure!


This resource is a collection of multimedia activities based on a particular theme and targeted math skills. Each activity guide includes digital content as well as related literacy connections and hands-on activities that allow children to practice and learn math skills to successfully complete a new adventure. Activities run 10-30 minutes to allow for flexible scheduling.

A unique feature to this resource is the "multi-show" approach to engaging kids with the content. Rather than focus on a particular PBS KIDS show or character, these guides use math skills to connect kids to multiple shows, characters and adventures in order to deepen their understanding of the math content.

  • Quick reference materials and media lists
