Whether it's a virtual road trip to the national parks or fast facts to complement the latest summer movie, Discovery Education's Cosmeo—an online learning service for kids—provides a new way to kick off the summer with Cosmeo Summer Explorations. Starting today, Cosmeo users will find fun, interactive activities for every grade level throughout the summer, plus a range of other summer projects that stimulate learning, according to Discovery Education's announcement.

Cosmeo's summer explorations, which are highlighted in a special section on the home page of the Cosmeo Web site, include activities designed to keep learning fresh during the summer months. The site also features a "Hotbox" of other summer learning activities, including animated stories for younger kids, back yard science projects, a screening room with video content that adds dimension to the latest summer movie, and more.

Each summer exploration will help kids take advantage of Cosmeo's 30,000 educational videos, 15,000 interactive quizzes, 200 brain games, and other educational articles and materials. Cosmeo's summer features will also help kids embrace learning opportunities when they travel on family vacations, discover new ways to celebrate holidays such as the Fourth of July, and explore their own interests in greater depth, the announcement states.
