2.) Special PBS KIDS Programming
What better way to celebrate with AETN KIDS than new features from your favorite PBS KIDS programs? Don’t miss new episodes of “Ready Jet Go!” and “Odd Squad” on National Summer Learning Day.

It also explains that an exoplanet is a planet that doesn't orbit the Earth's sun, but instead orbits a different star in the universe. “Odd Squad: Back to the Past/Odd Squad Needs You,” at 3:30 p.m. This episode teaches about using a calendar and understanding the concept of past, present and future. It also details time, learning how many seconds equal a minute and exploring what someone can do in one minute. 3.) I Can Readathon! Event Kit Facebook Contest
