Home School Day at the Capitol generally held in January or February each year is a combination of history and civics, and it 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, and tour slots are limited. More information on Home School Day at the Capitol can be found here.
