Home School Day at the Weems-Botts Museum

Tuesday, 06/05/2018 10:00 AM - Thursday, 07/05/2018 2:00 PM

The Weems-Botts Museum welcomes area home school families to a tour of the historic house museum and a hands-on, SOL-based lesson on archaeology. Families will participate in a mock "dig." Kids will have so much fun they won't even know they are learning about observations versus inferences while they use their critical thinking skills to interpret the artifacts they discover. They will also get the chance to hold real artifacts, try and piece together pot sherds, and make a fossil imprint or petroglyph carving to take home. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy it in our covered pavilion area in Merchant Park. $5/youth (6-18); adults and children under 6 free. Reservations appreciated.Attachments
