In this class, learners will be taken through hands-on activities and lectures that will bring us around the Earth and into space. I like to teach with real-world applications in mind. The classes have been designed with national standards in mind - and they meet all the science requirements for fifth grade science. At the beginning of each session, we will have a pre-assessment quiz and at the end of each session we will have a post-assessment quiz which is used to assess the overall...
This class is taught in English.
I have been teaching the sciences to students ranging in age from elementary to university levels for over a decade. I am passionate about providing the scientific foundations to the community. My degrees are in Animal Science, Fish &Wildlife, and Biochemistry. This course has been designed according to U.S. national standards with a small class size so that learners can feel more at ease in discussion and activities.
Each session, we will have a pre- and post-assessment to evaluate concept understanding. These are done through KAHOOT (an online tool), but the learners do not need to sign up on the website. They will be provided a game pin at the beginning of the assessment to access on the website. Any "digital materials" include whiteboard work in Zoom and on-screen activities (through screen share).

2 hours 50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In this class, we will sometimes use scissors. Please use your parental judgement about whether safety scissors are needed. If a learner is prone to placing inappropriate items in their mouth I ask that an adult be present for those days we are using items such as acetone, glue, dish soap, marbles, or beads. In this class, we will also use KAHOOT to conduct pre- and post assessments. Learners will not need an account and will be given a game pin to use to access the assessment. All "digital materials" will be shared with learners through the Share Screen or Whiteboard tools in Zoom.
