Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden provides a wonderful living laboratory for meaningful, real-world explorations for your home-schooled students. Themed programming on the last Wednesday of every other month will include a variety of learning stations offering hands-on, guided discovery experiences with our knowledgeable instructional staff. Programs are offered 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. geared towards children in grades K-5. To register in advance, call 704-829-1270 or register online. Students will learn the characteristics of an insect, compare/contrast insects with other arthropods and investigate these organisms that thrive in, on and near the water. Pond sampling and insect classification will be discussed. Please note, we ask that parents please stay with children during the homeschool day activities. Children may not be dropped off on their own.
