Oxford Virtual Academy

Dinosaur Hill is excited to be returning to our in-house field trips for the upcoming Spring 2022 semester with Oxford Virtual Academy!

Our Spring 2022 Semester is for Kindergarten-5th grade students!



This semester we will be exploring anatomy!  Exploring the natural science of biology, we will look at different body parts and body systems of living things. We will learn about what parts make up our bodies and those of other animals, designing our own animal piece by piece throughout the modules. From inside to outside and nose to toes, we'll explore how animals are suited to their environments through observation of living animals and taxidermy. We'll assemble models to show how organs work in people and discuss animals who have the same parts arranged differently and some animals that have specially adapted parts.

Classes will run for an hour on Friday's from 12:30-1:30pm and contain explorations of the systems and senses that animals use each day. There will be extensive use of models, taxidermy mounts, & bones- no dissections. 

Our semester is completely free for homeschool students enrolled with the Oxford Virtual Academy with no additional fees.

The fourteen week semester will begin at Dinosaur Hill's nature center, in person, with the first class on January 28th.
