Homeschool Discovery

Join us for a fun and educational homeschool meetup group! Homeschool parents, caregivers, and children are invited to share ideas and resources relating to our monthly theme. We will provide the space, resources, and create a few engaging activities to further reinforce what you are learning at home. You bring your ideas, projects, lesson plans, and more to share!

This month we will learn all about honeybees: their different jobs, how they pollinate, how they communicate, and more. We will take a trip out to our garden, in hopes of observing bees there. Finally, we will plant seeds of native plants that attract bees to our own yards.
