Home School Day at the Capitol on February 4th, a combination of history and civics, is a golden opportunity for those students studying West Virginia History. What better time to visit the historic Capitol building, meet your delegates/senators, and study the legislative process in our great state?

You might begin with this article from the WV Legislature describing how a bill becomes a law. Knowing the process in advance may add perspective to the legislative session that homeschoolers can attend – since hearty debate often happens in committee.

While at the Capitol, take advantage of the Capitol tour that includes its history and other fascinating tidbits. Finally, the State Museum is within easy walking distance from the Capitol and is packed with exhibits laid out in a timeline fashion.

All in all, HSDC is an exceptional opportunity for students studying WV History.  Registration is now open, and tour slots are limited.
