In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Hi Homeschoolers! 
I have another trip planned for us.
This one is to the art museum in Columbus which I have never been to, but people say it is great for kids.

The topic is US Western Expansion, and they have a program using "art, storytelling, interactive games, and hands-on activities to learn about the move westward." They divide up the younger kids (K-3rd grade) to learn about pioneers and covered wagon travel and then older elementary (4th and 5th grade) will learn about the Trail of Tears.

Both age groups will get a chance to learn in the galleries and then make a take-home art project in their studio.

The homeschool coordinator tells me there is a place to eat lunch outside afterwards, so my family will be bringing a picnic lunch. We would love to have anyone join us.

This is the only thing I am coordinating in Columbus on that day, but there are several other educational things to do around Columbus if you are interested in an afternoon activity also.
Here are some suggestions from other people on a2z:
Columbus Infantry Museum
Columbus Space Science Center
Chattahoochee Riverwalk
Civil War Naval Museum

And a website with information about all these and more:

Let me know if you are interested in going!
