Home School Days

Home School Day

Spring Date: Tuesday April 4, 2017

Home School students are invited to join us this Spring for our program, National Park Service: Over 100 Years of Keeping Our Heritage Alive. Using a combination of quality education practices and standards, students will learn about 18th Century Aristocracy, archaeology, habitat, and animals in the park. Participants will be broken up into specific groups based on age. For the duration of the event, we ask there be at least one (1) parent or guardian per seven (7) children.

Below are the offerings for the Spring 2017 Home School Day.

Curriculum Sessions

  • 3-5 years: Animals of Valley Forge
  • 6-8 years: Home is a Habitat
  • 9-11 years: Archaeology in the Park
  • 12-15 years: 18th Century Aristocracy

Break Out Sessions

  • Then and Now
  • 18th Century Medicine
  • Birds of Valley Forge
  • Native and Invasive Species of Valley Forge
  • 18th Century Weaponry
Sign-in for the first session begins at 9:30 am and the program concludes 12:30 pm. Sign-in for the second session begins at 1:00 pm and the programming concludes at 4:00 pm. Maximum number of students per session is 150 students.

Please arrive at the theater building by the Visitor Center at least fifteen minutes prior to your session time for check-in and to pick up your booklet. We recommend that you dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes. This program is designed for Home School Students only.
To prevent overcrowding on the day of the event, we ask that charter, virtual, and/or traditional schools register for our other ranger-led education programs during the academic year, October-May, rather than register for Home School Day.
