As parents nationwide try to find new ways to keep their children engaged in learning during the coronavirus crisis, help comes—at no cost—from a familiar and beloved source: Snoopy! 

Peanuts Worldwide, via its website, is offering free Spanish-language educational materials that give students from Kindergarten through eighth grade the chance to develop their STEM, language arts, and social studies skills with the help of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the whole Peanuts Gang. (The lesson plans are available in both Latin American and European Spanish.)

Several of the lesson plans feature Astronaut Snoopy exploring the thrill and science of space travel, and are complemented by the new series “Snoopy in Space” on Apple TV+. Both were created in collaboration with NASA. 

In other Peanuts online lesson plans, students can partner with Charlie Brown’s baseball teammates to sharpen their math skills; celebrate spring with the Peanuts gang while completing science, language arts, and math exercises; and learn about persistence—and enhance their own—through lessons from Charlie Brown, who never gave up trying to kick that football! 

Finally, all the online educational materials were developed by the award-winning curriculum specialists at Young Minds Inspired (YMI), the nation’s leading provider of free educational outreach programs, and reviewed by their blue-ribbon panel of active teachers.

“With many school districts across the country closed due to COVID-19, parents have been taking on a whole new responsibility: becoming their children’s teachers,” says Melissa Menta, Sr. Vice President, Marketing and Communications, for Peanuts Worldwide. “Fortunately, we have many educational materials and we are delighted to make all of them available in Spanish at no cost to parents everywhere.” 

The Spanish-language lesson plans are currently accessible via the homepage here. And when kids and their parents are ready for a relaxing mental break, Peanuts also offers free out-of-this-world coloring pages featuring Astronaut Snoopy and his crew.
