In my efforts to provide a well-rounded homeschooling curriculum for my son, I love to incorporate field trips to different places around the city.
This week, Thomas and I were able to participate in The Hunter Museum’s Pre-K class. This program is a great way to get children interested in art and to develop their creative minds. This week, we learned about the primary colors and how we can make other colors from those primary colors.
The children took a tour of the museum and studied three particular pieces of art work that focused on the primary colors.
The kids also had the opportunity to create their own pictures using the primary colors.
This art class also included story-time (which was related to the lesson) and a snack.
I highly encourage parents to get their children involved in programs outside of the homeschooling curriculum or the traditional school setting. By doing so, it gives children the opportunity to explore beyond the four walls.
A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE!
