About THSC Capitol Days
THSC Capitol Days is the ultimate hands-on experience in state government and a valuable tool for lobbying the Texas legislature on current issues of importance. Students and families meet in Austin for activities and training in the legislative process. In the morning session, attendees learn about current pending legislation important to Texas homeschoolers. After lunch attendees will reconvene, divide into teams and spend the afternoon at the Texas State Capitol delivering provided packets and lobbying the homeschool position to legislators and their staff.

Enrich Your Capitol Days Experience!
Produced by THSC specifically for Texas homeschoolers, this helpful, 80-page unit study helps to fulfill the requirement of “good citizenship.” Using this study, elementary- through high school-age students will gain a more complete understanding of government and the Texas legislature through the activities, projects and reading assignments. This study comes complete with a digital student booklet and also with the answer key (in a digital PDF format).**
Please note that the “Lone Star Study” is a popular addition to the Capitol Days experience. However, it is not a requirement for participation in Capitol Days.
Perfect for those looking to understand the state governmental process, this study takes students of all ages through the three branches of government and the law-making process. Students will write their senators and representatives, and high school-age students will research a piece of legislation. Take advantage of this hands-on enrichment for your homeschool!
**THSC members have access to the “Lone Star Study” as part of member benefits available by logging into the member portal.
