The New England Aquarium is committed to providing interactive and informative programming for students in homeschool programs. We are in the process of creating our Fall 2022 homeschooling program. Please continue to check back for more details. If you’d like to be put on an email list for homeschooling updates, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Activities for Homeschoolers
Below, find activities to help you explore the Aquarium more deeply. These activities encourage content learning and improve science skills as well as support math and literacy development. You can choose to focus on ecology, ethology, or zoology, or focus on the skills practiced. Pick a focus area to guide your own experience through the Aquarium. Aquarium educators will be available to help you work on these investigations. Each activity includes a list of recommended materials to bring with you. A pencil and clipboard are always recommended.
