Amazon has established itself as a one-stop shop for school supplies that suit every age. They've also proven that preparing for class doesn't need to be stressful. Amazon's School Supplies Guide breaks down products by category and age group (Grades K-2, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8, and Grades 9-12) so you can shop a curated list of age-appropriate materials. If your teen is off to college, you're also covered with their College Shopping Guide which includes the latest tech and everything they'll need to set up their dorm room.
