Homeschool Days at the Messiah College Oakes Museum of Natural History!
Helena Cicero, Education Coordinator, 1/21/2015

Messiah College, just 12 miles south of Harrisburg PA, off Route 15, is hosting special HOMESCHOOL DAYS at their Oakes Museum of Natural History on the campus. Classes involve hands-on lab experiences and active science enrichment learning. 

February 20, 2015: Animals in Winter: 

Discover the variety of ways animals in Pennsylvania survive the cold winter temperatures.

March 6, 2015:  Life on the Savanna: 

Students will learn how animals interact and survive on the savanna in Africa.

March 18, 2015:  Insects: 

Using live animals and museum specimens, students will learn about this diverse group of animals. 

Each program will be offered: 

9:30-12:00 K-4th focus

1:00-3:30  5th - 10th focus

Afternoon programs, for older students, are 'drop-off' programs. Programs for elementary students require a parent to stay with the child(ren). Younger siblings are welcome and are considered participants in the program. Infant siblings are free. Our grade designations are guidelines, not rules. 

COST: $10 per child

Pre-registration and prepayment is required. Space is limited, so register early!
