VIRTUAL Home School Day at the Capitol

Thursday, February 11, 2021

We’re LIVE Now!

We’re going VIRTUAL!

Don’t miss this jam-packed virtual event! It’s an educational day for your entire family!

Due to the restrictions in place at the Indiana statehouse, we are unable to move forward with our regular in-person event. But, rest assured that our team is working furiously to bring you a fun and educational day for the whole family.

This year, more than ever, homeschoolers need to be informed and engaged with what is happening in our state. Informed citizenship is the key to preserving our hard-won homeschool freedom. Just as limestone is our bedrock here in Indiana, so informed citizenship is the bedrock of our homeschool freedom.

New for 2021! Don’t miss our fun video contest! Click the button for more information!

Indiana Limestone Unit Study

Is limestone really that interesting? You might be surprised!  

Did you know

…that your toothpaste probably contains limestone?
…that Bedford, Indiana is called the Limestone Capital of the World?
…that the Pentagon was built (and rebuilt) using Indiana limestone?

Learning About Indiana: Who Works at the Statehouse?

Have you ever tried to explain how state government works to a child? It can be challenging. 

What exactly does the Lieutenant Governor do? And what is the role of the Court of Appeals in Indiana?

In this Unit Study, you will find engaging illustrations, clear explanations, maps, fun word scrambles, and much more that will help you and your child learn about our Statehouse and the people who work there.
