Class Experience

Students will learn about the universe and the different parts of it including suns, solar systems, the planets within our solar system, space objects, and technologies used to study the universe. 
I am a 5th grade teacher having taught elementary science for 2 years, and have taught middle school science for 8 years from 6-8th grade. I am licensed as a science teacher from 6-12 grade, with a Masters in Science Education. I like making learning relate to real world experiences so students can connect to material easier than standard memorization. I review in a flow pattern that starts with basic information and expands into complex information to assist students with retention. 
Students will receive weekly activities for learning extension, as well as access to kahoot review game and review games (not to be confused with Zoom breakout rooms). 
Students will be provided hand-outs for notes to keep for their possession each week, along with printable resources for activities. Students will also need a pencil to complete activities.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will receive an assessment  at the end of the course to assess mastery of the content instructed. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Material covered in this course refers to the universe and will discuss exploration and what we know about other planets. While alien life will not be discussed, the discussion that life may exist on other planets due to our limited knowledge of other solar systems will be briefly mentioned. 
Students will be provided note takers created by instructor, as well as access to Super Science Magazine through the teacher and publication rights. Students will gain reading passages and webquest created by instructor as well to supplement for learning extensions. Use of and will be used for class content practice through games.
