Virtual Classroom

Homeschool Wednesdays

This free program uses Nearpod.com to provide interactive lessons on important Kansas history topics. These lessons can be teacher led or self-paced for students. Students will use historical thinking skills to actively engage in "doing" history. The platform allows parents and teachers to check the progress of their student's work online. New classes launch on the first Wednesday of each month.
