Laura has set up some science classes at Peggy Notebart. Details from her:

I’ve organized two science classes for homeschoolers at the Peggy Notebaert
Museum. If we reach capacity (15 per class), each 11-week course will cost
$110 per child. Will you please forward the information below to CHC, NUG,
and any other Chicago list you might be on?

We did this last winter, and parents with young kids and babies hung out in
the playroom during class and took turns with one another being in the
classroom with the K-2 kids. Everyone gets in the museum free of charge and
there is usually parking in the lot across the street.

Please have interested people contact me by Friday the 8th:




There will be two classes running simultaneously on Thursdays from 1-3. The
dates are as follows:

September: 4, 11, 18, 25
October: 2,9,16,23,30
November: 6,13

The classes are:

AMAZING ANIMALS (K-2): It’s a jungle out there! Students use critical
thinking skills as they explore animal life cycles, habitats, adaptations,
and behaviors. Classifications, comparisons, observations, math, and
hands-on activities help students inquire about and discover the wonderful
world of animals.

SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY (Grades 3-5): Students follow the scientific method to
conduct physical science experiments, such as designing, building, and
testing parachutes, paper airplanes, and helicopters. They explore
different forms of energy through hands-on station activities. Students
learn about graphing the results of their experiments by testing how high
they can drop an egg before it breaks!
