CLEVELAND — The spread of novel coronavirus has interrupted the daily routines of people around northeast Ohio and around the country. But there are some resources online that will help you get through the day and the coming weeks.
There are online resources to help you and the kids stay in, or get in shape. Also, you can find entertainment aside from the typical options you’d expect to find on your standard streaming services.
Finding new ways to educate yourself isn’t a bad idea either. Here are some useful links to some cool things I found:
Explore some of America’s National Parks while guided by some of the best park rangers.
Mo Willems is an award-winning artist and illustrator. Why not doodle with the best?
Both of Northeast Ohio’s local zoos are providing interactive learning experiences every day. Since staff are still on-hand taking care of animals, you’ll be able to get a behind the scenes look while they answer your questions.
The British Museum is online in the virtual sense. Partnering with Google, they’ve provided some stunning pictures inside one of the world’s best museums.
If you have a child at home looking for some cool learning experiences send them over to Scholastic – a trusted source for students
Looking for yoga tutorials online? You can workout with a local group that is providing classes online since we can’t leave our homes. You can find a schedule and previously posted videos on their Facebook Page.
Cleveland’s YMCS is also showing you how to stay in shape during this extended break.
And if you look around, you’ll find music artists who are posting extra content to keep you busy online including Bruce Springsteen and others. They know we’re stuck inside and they want to make it easier on us. You’ll even find some free concerts, too.
I’m sure there are many other options out there to make the time you spend at home more enjoyable. Hopefully, this list is just the beginning. Send your suggestions to me on Twitter: @216brandon.
