Homeschool First Fridays is a series of environmental education programs developed especially for homeschoolers ages 4 to 12.  These classes are a great way to get hands-on science and nature lessons, receive help on projects and research and network with other homeschooling families. Each two-hour program will consist of indoor and outdoor hands-on learning. Depending on the topic, students may observe live animals, collect aquatic creatures, take measurements of water quality, or play games. 

  • Parents with younger children (ages 4-6) will stay with the group; parents of older children have the option of staying or not; there is no charge for parents since they are expected to participate as mentors and teachers.  Staff will provide guidance for parents on how to assist.
  • Siblings younger than 4 are welcome, but must be under the care of a parent/guardian at all times and should not distract the program participants.
  • Older and younger students will be grouped by age to allow for age-appropriate topic exploration (parents will stay with the younger group).

This fall’s homeschool series focuses on animal classification.  Each month will focus on a different animal group.  December’s class will be an investigation of mammals.  We will learn what makes them special and then search outside for some clues that they have been nearby.

Please register by November 30 to attend
