At the heart of learning is your child. Create Crate provides the opportunity for your child to put their fingerprint on education and make it their own. More than just a box of instructions and materials to make a product, Create Crate is a semester of adjustable, engaged, and guided learning, all from the comfort of your home.
Your Create Crate box contains a semester’s worth of carefully cultivated learning materials that align with California State Standards. Each four-week series of hands-on learning activities corresponds to an online course and covers four core subjects: English language arts, math, science, and social science. The hands-on learning materials and online content complement one another to create a rich experience. Under every project, there is an authentic and cross-disciplinary challenge. A good project solves a problem! Learners have the opportunity to express creativity, use problem-solving skills, and apply learned content to real-world problems.
Both the learner and parent partner with a credentialed teacher to dive deep into the weekly content, which culminates with a project related to real-world skills. Our facilitator does the hard work for you: from supporting growth opportunities to providing feedback and assessing your child’s strengths, parents can partner as little or as much as desired.
Weekly live sessions allow for engagement with other students and parents, conversation with the facilitator (teacher), and live learning activities and support.
