Heritage Hill Announces 2019 Programs For Home Schools

Home School Families in the Greater Green Bay Area have a definite advantage with Heritage Hill State Historical Park being right in our back yard.  And each year, Heritage Hill works to provide creative and engaging programs for home school students.

Recently, Heritage Hill announced their 2019 Home School Programs:

Wisconsin’s Amazing Women

Historic interpreters challenge your children to use their critical thinking skills to discover life in Northeastern Wisconsin as a fur trader, farmer, soldier, and tradesman. Students will compare and contrast today’s life to that of the past as well as consider how gender roles have changed over the years.

The literature is at about a 5th grade reading level.)
