Inspiring a passion for history and art.
A unique atmosphere where homeschool students can come together every month from September to April to create & learn about history and art.
All our homeschool programs are curriculum connected, exhibition related with a focus on experiential learning. Children learn history through power-point presentations with artifacts, do a hands-on museum activity and create an artwork to take home.
We offer the monthly topic for 4 grade levels: Preschool (age 3-4) Gr. K – 2, Gr. 3 – 5, Gr. 6+. Students are registered and divided into their 4 groups and rotate stations throughout the museum for their inquiry based and hands-on learning.
We are re-evaluating how the Homeschool History program runs. If you are interested in attending Homeschool History in the future, please contact us, or consider joining our mailing list to stay in the loop with everything Homeschool.
