Class experience

US Grade 5
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.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
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, hot water, glue, dish soap, marbles, or beads.
In this class, we will also use KAHOOT to conduct 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.
