Each week, enjoy a read aloud story, explore life during the Victorian era and complete hands-on activities connected to the plants and places that inspired Potter’s classic children ‘s tales. It’ll be a bit of literature, science, geography, artistic endeavors and more.

Students should bring a bag lunch and drink to enjoy for lunch.
