Carolina offers many materials and activities that can be used outside the classroom. All should be used with adult supervision. For safety, users should follow all instructions and should not attempt to substitute or reuse materials unless the instructions say to do so. Supervising adults must review the activities provided, ensure they are appropriate for the student’s maturity level, and ensure all safety recommendations are followed by students. Safety is paramount whether at school or home.
