Homeschooling & Special Needs, Inspired by the Montessori Way

Field Trip #3: Columbus Museum of Art August 3, 2011

The third field trip we took last week was with the homeschool group to the Columbus  Museum of Art.  The last time we were there, the entire museum was undergoing renovations.  This time, the remodeling is finished, and the museum looks spectacular!  In addition to the wonderful works on display, there is now a large (and very fun) children’s area, as well as children’s activities integrated throughout the museum’s regular exhibits.
