Home school families from throughout the region are invited to Sauder Village’s Home School Appreciation Days Sept. 4-8 and Sept. 11-15.
Connect the children to local history, receive discounted home school rates and special coupons, and enjoy hands-on activities throughout the week.
“Our costumed guides and working craftsmen help bring history to life for students of all ages,” said Kim Krieger, PR/media relations. “Home School Appreciation Days are a great time for home school families to have fun in the past while learning something new at Sauder Village.”
As a special for Home School Appreciation Week, home school families will receive a special discount of $7 admission per person for ages six and up. Three will be a variety of STEAM (science, technology, education, arts, and math) activities planned for children to try, in addition to engaging opportunities to explore Ohio’s rich history from 1803 through 1928.
The village will offer visits to historic homes, farms, gardens, and community shops. Families can take a walk through time while exploring wigwams and a trading post at Natives & Newcomers, then continue to the Pioneer Settlement area to experience life in Ohio from 1830-70 at the log school, church, barn, homes, and gardens.
At the Grime Homestead guests can experience life in the 1920s while exploring a farmhouse complete with a telephone, radio and player piano. Home school families can also marvel at craftsmen blending skill and creativity in glass, metals, fabric, wood, and clay.
Other attractions include the log cabin, barn, and garden at Little Pioneers Homestead and meeting the animals in the barnyard.
