As I type this, I can still hear the sounds of home educator families enjoying activities in the classrooms at Monticello’s Carl and Hunter Smith Education Center. Today, we were delighted to host our 2nd Annual Home Educators’ Day. Despite heavy rain this morning, I’ve encountered lots of smiling faces and many families who are enjoying learning about the genius of Jefferson together.
Throughout today families went on house tours, explored the new Crossroads exhibition, played games from the early 1800s, made book marks and travel journals, investigated reproductions of some of Jefferson’s gadgets, and had a lot of fun! We look forward to next year’s…. save the date, March 7, 2012.
