Homeschool Days

SCM's Homeschool Days is a monthly program for homeschool students and their families. Homeschool Days provides homeschool students with a fun-filled learning experience full of educational programming and museum play!


During Homeschool Days, one all-ages class is offered exclusively to Homeschool Students during the Museum's open hours. Classes are appropriate for Grades Preschool-2 and may include science, art, music, cultural, and/or literacy classes. 


Homeschool Days is offered the third Thursday of each month from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. Upcoming 2017 Homeschool Days are April 20 and May 18. Please Note: We will not be offering Homeschool Days classes over the summer (June-August).


Discounted admission for Non-Member adults and children (over 1) is $5/person, which includes the class and Museum play. Because Homeschool Days is a special event, a class fee of $3 is required for each Member child.

  • Non-Member adults and children: $5 per person

  • Member adults, Member children not taking class & children under 1: Free

The Museum is a vendor with Horizons Charter Schools, Visions in Education, South Sutter Charter School, Summit Academy, and Pacific Charter Institute and its entities.

APRIL 20, 2017: Plant Parts

Join us this month as we dissect plants and learn about all of their parts! We will be learning about each part of a plant and why each is important. This class is completely hands-on as we will be taking apart a plant together, sorting each part into its respective category, describing why each part is important to the plant, and then creating our own plant recreation to take home!

MAY 18, 2017: Science Fair

The Science Fair has arrived at the Museum! During our May Homeschool Days class, we will become scientists and use all of our senses as we try out various science activities. Not only will we have lots of varying scientific discoveries, but we will be focusing on how to read and follow directions!
