**This is not an event SE Homeschool Fieldtrips, Classes and Support Page is hosting. We are posting homeschool days and other family friendly events to make it easier for homeschool families to find experiential learning opportunities in the SE USA.
Experience a different side of Historic Oakland Cemetery with Young Historians, Historic Oakland Foundation’s educational program for homeschool students and their families. Each program will explore a special topic and offer opportunities for students to learn in Oakland Cemetery’s unique setting.
Each two-hour program includes games, fun activities, and tours designed to engage and educate. Programs are age-appropriate, and educational activities correspond to Georgia Performance Standards.
Young Historians programs are from 10 a.m. to noon. Programs will be held inside the Visitors Center and outside on the grounds of Oakland Cemetery.
Student tickets are $6 for children of Historic Oakland Foundation members, and $8 for children of non-members. Adult tickets are free. Spaces are limited, and tickets must be purchased in advance.

Discover the storytellers, novelists, poets, and journalists who brought words to life and entered Oakland’s gates through death. In our first Young Historians program of 2018, we’ll unleash our inner poets and create an Oakland daily. We’ll meet a few of Oakland’s word-weavers along the way, including novelist Margaret Mitchell, diarists Carrie Berry and Samuel Pearce Evans, poet Lollie Belle Moore Wylie, and Pulitzer-Prize winning journalists Julia and Julian Harris.
Age: Recommended for ages 8-14.
Mark your calendars for our 2018 Young Historian programs! Registration opens January 10.
