Join us as we explore the amazing history and natural wonder of the largest body of fresh water in the world – Lake Superior. Learn about Superior’s First Peoples, important tributaries, island life, geology, shipwrecks, natural resources, and more through entertaining original songs, stories old and new of life on the lake, and spectacular images on our big screen!
This production is best suited for students grade 3 and above, and offers opportunities for classroom discussions about tribal history, the fur trade, history of mining and logging, fish and wildlife, changing economics, and importance of protecting the fresh water of the Lake Superior Basin.
Homeschool Swim will be starting up again on Wednesday, September 6, 2017, at the Bayfield Recreation Center. We will meet every week on Wednesdays from 1:00-2:30 p.m. — final swim of the season will be on Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018. Cost is $5 per child or $15 per family. There is no need to register or sign up in advance – just come for any or all times as you are able. And don’t forget to bring your own towel! Preschoolers welcome!
World of Wheels in Superior, WI sets aside the 2nd Thursday of each month for Homeschool Skate. Sometimes this coincides with a Duluth or Superior school district holiday and the rink can get quite busy, so you may wish to check school district calendars before going. Admission is $4.00. Skate rental (if needed) is an additional fee. (Quad rentals are $2.00 and inline rentals are $3.50.) Skating is from 1:00 – 3:30 p.m. More information and directions can be found at their website: wowskatecenter.com
