Home School Groups
Fairbanks Museum educators work with home school groups to offer a range of learning activities, making use of our amazing museum galleries, our extensive outdoor campus in Danville, and other environments in St. Johnsbury. Our focus is on experiences that make learning fun and memorable for learners in grades K – 8.
Home school families can come individually or in a group to join one or more of these regularly scheduled programs.
Please contact Leila Nordmann, Program Director, to find out more.
Home School Days for 2017:
For Friday, January 13th, we will meet in the field at the Sherryland property in Danville from 12-2pm. We will observe winter seasonal changes to the land and look for animal tracks. We will discuss the effects that colder weather and snow have on both plant and animal life. Please feel free to bring snowshoes if you have them. This is a new property for us to explore and there maybe a bit of a snow pack built up by then.
$10 per student with one chaperone free. Directions to the sugar bush at Sherryland:
Take Peacham Road south from Route 2 in Danville. Turn left on to Brainerd Street and stay on it (do not turn on to Joes Brook road to the left). Brainerd will become Greenbanks Hollow Road. Click here for the Google Map
Please park along the road around 525 Greenbanks Hollow Road. We will have a "family field day" sign up with an arrow pointing to the meeting spot.
