The Arlington Public Library is offering a class for homes chooled students aged three to seven. It will be a great field trip for both parents and children, and will give the kids a lesson that’s as fun as it is informative.
Homeschool Hands on Science: Backbone Bonanza will be held at the Central Library Community Room on Tuesday, October 9, from 2 to 3 p.m. Do your home school students know what a vertebrate is? Do you (hint: there’s a giveaway clue in the title of the class)?
Attendees of this hands-on science class will go on a “vertebrate safari” and learn fun facts about animals that are classified as vertebrates. To really bring the lesson home, they’ll also get a chance to create a vertebrate animal of their own.
The community room at the library is plenty big enough to give the kids room to move around, and with a library full of books around, students can do even more research if they’re inspired by the safari.
This is not the only home school class the library offers. Check the calendar for more information. The Central Library is located at 101 E. Abram St. For more information about the Backbone Bonanza, contact the library at 817-459-6900.
