Homeschool students can explore the marine world in a new weekly series of standards-based programs utilizing the vast educational resources of The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.
A Marine Animal Adaptations series for ages 7 to 9 and a Marine Biology series for ages 10 to 13 will meet on Monday mornings from Sept. 24 to Nov. 12. Each session in the eight-week series runs from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. (Times may vary on the days of a coastal beach exploration and a study cruise onto Long Island Sound).
“We’re happy to include and involve homeschool students in these unique explorations of Long Island Sound and the marine world, all of which help to fulfill Next Generation Science Standards,” said Tom Naiman, the Aquarium’s director of Education. “While these classes will be impactful as students discover together, an additional side benefit is the chance for homeschool parents — during drop-off and pick-up — to connect and share as well.”
