National Parks and Monuments
Creative Homeschooling with National Parks and Monuments
Visiting National Parks and Monuments, downloading information from their websites and researching their history is a terrific tool for the homeschool family. Being on site, learning about important battles and heroes from our past, generates excitement and curiosity. It makes learning fun, and makes history real.
The Fort Sumter Visitor Education Center at Liberty Square sits on the site of Gadsden’s Wharf, where hundreds of thousands of enslaved Africans were brought into the United States. Today the site interprets the causes and catalysis of the Civil War and the results of that war on the nation. ~ Fort Sumter
Some of the most critical monuments in American history have been well preserved within the National Parks system where you can visit and learn not only about the rich history, but also about the natural science – flora and fauna in the area.
We like to combine reading, researching information on both history and science and the hands on learning available by factoring in as many of these types of field trips as possible.
