#StayAtHome Teen Writing Prompts

I’m stuck at home, like most of us, and looking for a way to help the teens who are suddenly doing distance education.

Students often have fewer hours of school or are looking for fun things to fill the rest of their days. And teachers and homeschooling parents may need some ideas.
