Conversation starters

Here are some ways to get the conversation flowing whether you are talking on the phone, texting, or doing a video call:

  • Who can design the best Lego boat? Talk about how to make a boat that will hold the most weight and see how many pennies your boat can hold.

  • What if human flight wasn't just the stuff of epic comic book stories? Is it scientifically possible to fly? In this series from TedEd, Joy Lin tackles six superpowers and reveals just how scientifically realistic they can be to us mere mortals. TedEd has many other series you can watch and talk about too.


  • No internet access, not a problem with this activity. Print off the Debug the Maze worksheet and play the coding game without a computer.
