A great event for the whole family!
This fun, one session class is a great addition to any history curriculum. The best part is that you get to rest and let us teach the lesson. Online classes are great way to add variety to your child’s education.
Let’s take a peek inside the White House, and see how America’s first families have celebrated Christmas through the years.
Join in the fun in our live, online virtual classroom. Students will be able to see me and hear me from my HD web cam, and will be able to see a PowerPoint presentation on the screen. Students will be able to communicate in a chat window.
