Summer is a time to relax and enjoy the sun. You also can do many great activities. I asked 60 middle school students to pick their favorite things to do during summer — going to the beach, water parks, camps and shopping. These are the results:

Beaches: 32

Water parks: 17

Camps: 6

Shopping: 5

The boys mostly chose camps and water parks. Some students said having all of these choices was hard because they spend their summer doing all these things, and they don’t have just one favorite. I also realized most girls chose to go to the beach rather than boys.
