Virtual History for Homeschoolers
For our 2023-2024 Homeschoolers season, we will be offering a special series of virtual History for Homeschoolers classes. This option will feature one introductory activity to do at home and one activity we do together during a Zoom session.
The Zoom sessions will be offered the first TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY of each month, September 2023 through May 2024, 10:00-10:45 and 11:00-11:45. Class materials will be shared the Monday prior to the Zoom class.
Recommended for children ages 7 to 12. Some activities involve reading and writing. Pre-registration is REQUIRED; space is limited.
Each session includes history-related activities that focus on the month's theme through a google classroom.
This year, we will be implementing a subscription model for our classes. This subscription will include registration for all History for Homeschooler classes, September to May. Cost for standard registration will be $72 per child, or $48 for Vermont Historical Society Members or families with three or more participating children. Parents and non-participating children are free.
Please contact email@example.com for alternative payment options.
