40 sites for students with free time on their hands

As a teacher, there’s always been a question that I wanted to have an answer to.

“I’m done. What do I do now?”

Early in my teaching career, my answer was, “If you’re done, you’re done.” That was my veiled answer for, “I don’t know what you should do next.”

If you’re ever stuck without a good answer — like I was at times — it’s nice to have something solid you can pull out of your back pocket, so to speak.

When my students have had free time on their hands, I have always loved to direct them somewhere online that is engaging or interesting as well as academic in some form. In my years as a high school Spanish teacher, I’ve been happy to direct them to places where they’d learn about other things than Spanish with that free time. Just as long as it was academic in nature.

(To be clear, that free time doesn’t have to be spent online. Although the suggestions I’ll make here are, great alternatives can include drawing, creating with Legos or Play-Doh, or more!)

Here are some of my favorite spots to direct students that will encourage and inspire them. I even shared some of these on TikTok in some of my most popular videos. Check them out below  (and follow me on TikTok!)

Scroll down for 40 sites for students who finish early. File them away for a rainy day, and if you need something stimulating for your students, pull them out!
