Homeschooler Days

December’s lesson topic is “Bones.” We’ll take the skeletons out of our closet, dust them off, and get out our magnifying glasses for a closer look. After delving into the science of bones, we’ll learn some museum fabrication techniques for making bones of our own to take home at the end of the day!

Our Homeschooler Days program serves homeschooled students, ages 5 – 13, and meets monthly with morning and afternoon sessions to choose from.  This year’s topics range from botany to colonial cooking, and from navigation to creating music from birdsong!
