The Fort Pitt Museum and Point State Park invite homeschool students in in 4th, 5th, and 6th grades to participate in a series of in-depth classes related to history and environmental studies. Classes will be both hands-on and minds-on and will include reading and writing activities, student-led discussions, and take-home assignments for students to continue their learning after class.

THE MIGHTY MONONGAHELA

  • Students will learn about how humans used the rivers around Pittsburgh in the 18th century.
  • Students will learn about modern uses of the rivers around Pittsburgh and the impacts that humans have had on the rivers.
  • Students will conduct a “health checkup” of the Monongahela River at Point State Park using standard water quality tests and compare water from the Monongahela River to water samples taken from another Pennsylvania State Park.
