Homeschool Program

 

Nahant Marsh Education Center provides a monthly program specifically geared towards homeschool children. Each session is held the last Friday of the month. The purpose of the programs is to provide homeschool students with the opportunity to learn and explore nature. Students will be able to examine the value of nature, effects of humans on nature, and how to conserve nature.

Our homeschool program runs during the months of a typical school year from September – May and is geared towards grades K-9th. Each month presents a different topic and grades are separated and presented at appropriate levels. Depending on the subject matter, lessons will include power point, outdoor exploration, and engaging hands-on activities.

Cost: $8 per session or $64 for the year for non-members.
$6 per session or $48 for the year for members.

Grades: K-9th

Time: 2:30-4:00 p.m.
