Homeschool Day at Montpelier
Montpelier sends a big "THANK YOU" to all who came to our first ever Homeschool Day on April 1st!
Mark your calendars- April 1st is the day!
You know, James Madison began as a homeschooler... though he may not have used that term yet! In honor of James' homey beginnings, and in honor of YOU, the ever-inquisitive and adventurous homeschooling family, Montpelier will host its first ever Homeschool Day on April 1, 2013.
In addition to Montpelier's everyday wonders like...
James and Dolley Madison's beloved home
The archaeology lab full of artifacts
Fascinating museum exhibits, and
Our James Madison Landmark Forest
... this special day will feature a full line-up of fun, educational, interactive programs and activities. Take a guided hike of our old growth forest, sit in on the Constitutional Convention, read from James' bookshelf, play colonial games, and much more!
As a special addition to Homeschool Day, Dr. Lynn Uzzell of the Center for the Constitution will lead a lecture and discussion on how home educators can teach the Constitution using an historical perspective.
You are welcome to stay the whole day, so remember to bring your picnic basket.
Note: In the event of rain, certain events will be canceled or moved to alternate locations. Please pick up a map and Homeschool Day program at the visitor center which will detail these rain plans.
Date: April 1, 2013
