Learn about fashion trends of the past during the next Homeschool History Adventures programs presented by the Johnson County Museum in early October.
During these programs, which are for ages seven to 13, participants will examine artifacts from the museum's collection, explore the museum's main exhibit called "Becoming Johnson County," and put their brains and hands to work with interactive projects, games, and activities in the museum classroom. These monthly sessions serve as an engaging supplement to homeschool curriculums, and give students the opportunity to build both new friendships and a new appreciation for what came before us.
These programs take place at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center, 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park. The cost for each two-hour program is $6 per person, and museum members receive a 20 percent discount but must register by telephone to receive their discount. Registration includes admission to the Johnson County Museum and to KidScape.
