In the sweltering Phoenix heat, leaving the house can be a big event, but homeschoolers may want some new venues during the summer for a change of pace. Why not check out some of the valley’s free offerings as a way to stay cool and learn some new things at the same time?
The Phoenix Heard Museum is home to Native American artifacts and history, and happens to be free for the community on Saturdays during July. Music, interactive activities, treasure hunts, book signings and free treats will help you and the family forget about the thermometer for a few hours while you increase your cultural IQ.
There are only two Saturdays left, so get your family or your homeschool group and check out these great activities. The museum is open 9:30-5:00, and the events begin at 10:30.
