USA TODAY and the Smithsonian Institution have partnered to create a summer road trip-themed learning guide packed full of games, puzzles, recipes and other activities alongside features about items in the Smithsonian’s collection. It’s primarily for students ages 6-12, but fun for anyone.

Some of the interactive and educational features:

  • Learn about a biplane from the National Air & Space Museum, then make your own from a paper towel roll and other household items.

  • From the National Museum of American History’s recipe collection, cook Louisiana-inspired red beans and rice.

  • Read about migratory birds from the National Museum of Natural History – and build your own binoculars.

  • Unscramble letters to learn about marshland creatures.

  • Document the journey with a postcard to a friend and design the stamp.

  • Some of the activities are in English and Spanish to support bilingual readers.
