Home School Groups
Fairbanks Museum educators work with homeschool 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.
Homeschool 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.
Homeschool Days for 2018:
**New Homeschool Membership for 10 months of Friday classes for $50 per child.**
This membership is for homeschool students attending homeschool Fridays only. It does not count as a museum membership. From the time you sign-up, it will be good through June 2018. Please sign up through the museum's front desk or through Leila Nordmann.
For June 15th, we'll be in the field, 12-2pm. Bobby Farlice-Rubio will lead the group to the beaver pond with nets and tanks. Students will have a catch to catch pond critters, such as frogs, turtles, and newts and learn more about who they are, their lifecycles and why they are important in a pond habitat. The beaver pond trip meets at the Matsinger's property in Danville:
The Matsinger Pond is at 3029 Thaddeus Stevens Road, Danville: https://goo.gl/maps/8gN44DioUuwTake route 2 to Danville and turn left on Peacham Road. In Harvey Hollow turn left on Brook Road before the bridge. At Greensbanks Hollow turn right on Thaddeus Stevens Road. There is a clearing large enough for a number of cars to pull in on the left side of the road right past ponds visible from the road.
It will be $10 per student with one chaperone free.
