Homeschool Day: The Battle of Atlanta
This month’s Homeschool Day and Magic Monday are the last installment of the 2012-2013 school year’s series. Homeschool Day is on May 9th, and teaches kids about the Battle of Atlanta. Magic Monday is on May 12th, and incorporates the traveling exhibition Following in the Bartrams’ Footsteps as well as fun outdoor activities. Don’t worry, we are already planning the 2013-2014 session of these popular student programs! Keep an eye out for an announcement of next year’s line-up
This monthly program for toddlers and preschoolers (18 months to five years) engages our youngest visitors in activities that introduce them to history in creative ways. Each Magic Monday has a unique theme and includes a guided exploration of one of our exhibitions, historic houses, or award-winning gardens, as well as demonstrations, arts and crafts projects, and story time. Join us for another exciting year and connect with old friends while meeting new ones. This month, follow in John Bartram’s footsteps and explore our gardens to discover the beauty of nature. Little explorers will learn about different plants and flowers, and create their own art inspired by the botanical world.
Grab your family and friends and head to the Atlanta History Center on the third full weekend (Saturday and Sunday) of each month, from April through June 2014. On these dates ALL guests to the Atlanta History Center receive FREE admission, including access to The Kinsey Collection exhibition.
