Free Educational Program for Homeschool Families 

Museum of Work & Culture & Harris Public Library Offer Third Program in Series


(WOONSOCKET, R.I.) –  On Monday, February 5, the Museum of Work and Culture, a division of the Rhode Island Historical Society, and the Woonsocket Harris Public Library will host the third program in their bi-monthly free educational series for homeschooled families. 


A l’école: Walking Through Their School Day will begin at the Museum, where families will gather in the parochial school classroom to learn about early twentieth-century school life. Children will discover what school was like for the French-speaking Catholic population of Woonsocket. By interacting with photographs, artifacts, and traditional classroom resources, students will discover the relationship between the church and school, learn a few French words, and maybe even take a pop quiz!  


After the Museum program, participants will move to the Woonsocket Harris Public Library. At the library, homeschool students will consider a school day in the early 20th-century parochial schoolroom while contemplating their own experiences as modern-day homeschoolers. Students will self-reflect on their personal interests, talents, & goals to create a mixed media collage on canvas or notebook, using lots of fun crafting tidbits.


This two-part program will have two sessions, each starting at the Museum of Work & Culture. Families may register for the 10 am-12 pm session or the 11 am-1 pm session. Space is limited, and registration is required. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for reservations.
