Our home school classes are offered on Mondays from 1:00-3:00 pm for students ages 5-12. A different three-week science unit is taught each month, with each class consisting of instructional time, hands-on activities, and guided nature walks. Handouts for parents with extension ideas and projects are provided for follow up at home.
