The Children's Museum of New Hampshire offers sessions of its popular focused group visits for homeschoolers! Once a month on Tuesdays from 2-4:30 pm, homeschool students ages 6-11 can sign up for a lesson led by museum educators followed by time to explore the Children's Museum of New Hampshire.
These visits are $8/child for the lesson and museum exploration and families get in at a discounted rate of $6/person to explore the Children's Museum of New Hampshire while homeschoolers are in their lesson. Students must register in advance, and each class is limited to 25 students.
Past Homeschool Focused Group Visits have included these topics:
The Science of Sound What is sound? How are sounds produced? What does sound look like? We will answer these questions and more with hands on experiments and educator-led demonstrations.
Nocturnal Animals This lesson introduces students to the wonders of New England's nocturnal animals. Why do these animals stay awake at night and sleep during the day? What special senses do owls have to help catch their prey in the dark? These questions and more will be explored and answered. Students will also participate in an interactive dissecting owl pellet activity and an animal sounds guessing game.
Deep Sea Creatures -- Bioluminescence This lesson introduces students to the deepest darkest sections of the ocean and the amazing creatures that live—and glow there! This lesson focuses on bioluminescent sea creatures and how they survive in their deep sea environment. This program has vibrant images, videos, fascinating information and ends with a glowing sea creature matching game!
