Class experience

US Grade 1 - 3
Students who participate in this class learn:

-Basic knowledge of the history/culture of various countries
I am a CO-certified K-6 teacher with over 20 years of experience teaching social studies.  I have taught in a variety of environments, including homeschool, public, and private school settings.  I have also taught a variety of subjects for over 3 years on Outschool, including social studies.  I make every effort I can to include multiple perspectives and prevent broad generalizations of cultures past and present.  Students in my class are expected to participate in discussions with respect to the cultures we are studying.  
Homework Offered
Students are assigned to look over a page or two in the National Geographic Kids World Atlas, as an optional homework activity. They may share their findings in class.
Assessments Offered
I am always informally assessing students in class and adjusting my teaching based on their understandings.
Grades Offered
Upon enrollment you will receive a detailed supply list including activity supplies and book lists.  

One purchase you will need to make if you plan to have your student do the homework is the National Geographic Kids World Atlas, available on Amazon for about $13: https://amzn.to/3MZUQ3a

Most other supplies include common art supplies, cooking ingredients, and office supplies. 
Some of the activities may require adult supervision, such as cooking and using scissors.  These activities may be completed outside of class if necessary.
