Mapping Early Phoenix – Homeschool Days
October 8, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree – $7
This field trip is all about maps. We review how to read them, practice using them, and learn the stories they have to tell. The stories focus on the area’s past, why and how it was settled, and how it has changed over time. All activities are interactive and include many hands on activities.
Our Homeschool Days are reserved especially for home educated families. “Mapping Early Phoenix” is geared towards students 7 years and older, but children of all ages are welcome.

Field Trip activities include:

- Scavenger Hunt – reinforces map reading skills as small groups tour outside at Heritage Square, look for clues and answer questions.The hunt has three skill levels so that everyone can participate. Each site has a clue to be solved and a prize will be awarded to all who finish.
