This is the first year we have opened our program for K-12 students. Because of the broad range of participant ages, we have tailored E ʻIke Hou readings and worksheets accordingly.
Level 1 is meant for our younger participants in lower elementary. Adult guidance or help from older students is recommended.
Level 2 students will likely be in upper elementary or middle school. The readings and worksheets in this level are more challenging than level 1. Some middle school students may level up if they would like a more in-depth explanation of concepts.
Level 3 is designed for high school participants and any adults who are interested in learning more. The readings are comprehensive and include some SAT vocabulary words.
