Virginia Living Museum Homeschool Day Feb 23, 2014

Virginia Living Museum Homeschool Day The Virginia Living Museum in Newport News will open its classroom doors to homeschoolers again, Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014, with a selection of fun and engaging classroom programs that highlight important natural science and earth science concepts for ages pre-K through grade 12.

“Only at the VLM can your homeschooled students meet live animals, handle museum quality specimens, experiment with real scientific equipment and more while learning about the fascinating world around us!” says Museum Education Director Chris Lewis.

Natural Science Programs introduce young students to the rich variety of life in the "watery" habitats of our region and the basics of animal survival. Older students can learn about plants and animals, and earth underfoot.

Space Science Programs in the planetarium are available for all ages as students learn about weather on the planets, how climate change may have contributed to the sinking of the Titanic, and how important the stars were to the early colonists.

Environmental Science Labs for students in grades 5-12 focus on life in the Chesapeake Bay and mineralogy.

The museum’s science education programs have been endorsed by the Virginia Department of Education, the U.S. Department of Education, and the National Science Foundation. Click
