Engaging children during school closures caused by nCovid-19

I have collated various online resources available on the internet for use by parents and students to continue their learning during the time when schools are closed.

In the first section, you will find the online resources created by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India for School Students.

In the second section, you will find Grade-wise Online Resources that includes apps, websites, youtube links and so on. Some of them may not be relevant to CBSE / ICSE / State Boards in India but most would be helpful to build additional skills and concepts that are relevant for 21st-century skills like communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity. Please review the resources and pick up what suits you best. I have also suggested YouTube channels especially for young kids, that can be fun and engaging. Some of these resources are also useful for Teachers and Parents to collaborate and conduct online learning programs/content/schedules/courses.
