Homeschool Days

Homeschool Days 2013 – 2014

The Early Years: Before We Became a Nation

Join us this school year as we explore the Upcountry’s colonial history. What did a Cherokee village look like? Why did the Scots-Irish settle in the Upcountry? How did the Revolutionary War shape today’s landscape? Discover the answers to these questions and more through primary resources, hands-on activities, and in-depth discussions.

Thank you for your survey responses. Based on the results, we have made some changes to how we execute home school days:

  • Thursdays are no longer being offered; however, we will continue to offer program for middle and high school students on Fridays during the morning and afternoon sessions.
  • Programs will be offered during the morning and afternoon sessions for these age groups at different locations in the museum:
  • Ages 2-5 Story-hour, craft, snack (please bring your own), and free-play
  • Ages 6-8 Presentation & hands-on activity
  • Ages 9-16 Lecture & discussion
  • Due to space constrictions in these spaces, parents need to register their children by age group.

The following will remain the same:

  • Seats are $5.00 for UHMFU MEMBERS: students (Ages 2-16) and teachers; $6.50 for NON-UHMFU MEMBERS; and, children under 2 are free.
  • Online pre-registration is required.
  • All students must be accompanied by an adult to the event; please use your discretion to determine which child/program you accompany.
  • Programs are from 10:00-12:00 and 1:30-3:30.

May 16th: The Upcountry & The American Revolution

 Spend the day on Heritage Green!
