Homeschool Day

September 21 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

Homeschool students and their adults are invited to come to CBMM’s fall Homeschool Day, selecting either a morning or afternoon program to explore the history of the greatest oyster factory on Earth —the Chesapeake Bay. Students will help construct a dugout canoe, learning about a time in which oysters lay thick as stones, explore the cabin of a skipjack, and investigate close-up the tiny critters that inhabit an oyster reef. Families are encouraged to bring a bag lunch and picnic on campus. The Campus Challenge scavenger hunt will also be available for families to explore other museum highlights at their own pace. Individual families and co-op groups alike are welcome to attend.
