Environmental Education Designed for Homeschool Students
Join us at the Wetlands Institute once a month for a 90-minute interactive lesson. Each lesson includes classroom instruction, outdoor activities, scientific experiments and exploration, and even homework. We use hands-on methods to reinforce students’ abilities in not only science, but also math, language arts, and social skills.
Children of all ages are taught together, and we emphasize multi-age learning and peer assistantship. The ages of our students range from 5 to 15. Younger students experiencing a lesson for the first time learn the basics of the topic, and students with some previous experience build upon their knowledge and solidify their understanding through more in-depth exposure to the topic.
We offer one Homeschool Day each month.
September: Camouflage October: Hibernation November: Winter Adaptations
December: Populations January: Territories February: Tracks
March: Local Birds April: Nests and Babies May: Horseshoe Crabs & Shorebirds
Group Size and Payment: Each lesson costs $8 per student. There is no charge for parents, or siblings who do not participate in the lesson. We can accommodate groups of 8 to 30 students per class.
To Register: Please call (609) 368-1211 to schedule at least one week in advance. Your child is not committed to attend every month’s lesson. Although each lesson tends to build on its predecessors, you can pick and choose the lessons best suited to your child. Please email Sue Slotterback, Environmental Educator at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
