Sweet Educational Hersheypark Printables for Homeschoolers & Virtual Learning

We’ve made so many great families memories at Hersheypark and the Hershey, Pennsylvania attractions, many that we’ve documented on the pages of Jersey Family Fun. So as I started to think about all the fun places kids love to go and which ones could help our kids learn, and want to learn, I knew I had to include Hersheypark.

Between the legacy of Milton Hershey, the coasters at Hersheypark, and all the things to do in Hershey it wasn’t too hard to come up with Hersheypark printables for math, spelling, writing, history, geography, and reading comprehension. I’ve even includes links to some printables for art time and a list of Hersheypark-inspired activities for gym.

Jersey Family Fun is offering a collection of Hersheypark printables and educational worksheets.

Hersheypark Spelling List

I am one of those parents that believes spelling skills are something all kids need. I know spell check exists, but there’s something to be said for being able to still write out our thoughts, stories, and letters on paper where spell check doesn’t exist. You also can’t take advantage of spell check if you can’t get close enough to the correct spelling of the word for it to recognize what you’re trying to spell. With that in mind, I created this list of words that come to mind when I think of Hersheypark.
