Homeschool classes are regularly offered by some of the museums in the CASHA region. These classes can be a great supplement to your homeschool program or even just a pleasant opportunity for your students to get out and meet their homeschooling peers while learning new and exciting things.

Children's Discovery Museum, Normal, IL
In addition to their numerous free floor programming events and classes open to the public, the Children's Discovery Museum, located in uptown Normal, offers monthly classes during the school year for homeschooled children. Multiple sessions of each class are usually offered and classes are divided by age groups: 5-8 and 9-13. Topics vary from historical to scientific in nature.
