Class experience

US Grade 2 - 5
Students will learn about different eras in history, through the lens of American Girl. 
Some challenging topics in history, such as Pearl Harbour and slavery will be discussed. These conversations will use the stories of the American Girl characters as a guide for age-appropriate knowledge. I am an elementary school teacher experienced in leading children through conversations that balance respect for age-appropriate limits and their need for knowledge. 
Campers will need a piece of ribbon or elastic long enough to wrap around their waist, various colours of ribbon, various colours of tulle, scissors, a retractable tape measure that can be cut, coloured duct tape, white glue, water, various colours of paint, paintbrushes, paint cups, stickers, white knee-high socks, fabric paint, measuring cups, mixing bowls, shaving cream, flour, food colouring, construction paper in various colours, four or five clothespins, googly eyes, a rock, yarn in various colours, felt in various colours, a pencil with small eraser on the end, white paper, two clear plastic bottles, vegetable oil, Alka Seltzer tablets, a few paper towel rolls, tape, aluminum foil, ziploc bags, sand, a funnel, a spoon, a skewer or chopstick, plastic containers, three paper plates, a small piece of foam core or a recycled foam plate, markers, a ping pong ball, a jacks set, a skipping rope, liquid starch or borax, pencil crayons, popsicle sticks, a shoebox, pipe cleaners, fabric scraps, a cotton ball, string or twine, rubber bands, salt, an egg carton, beads or dried beans, half and half, salt, ice, vanilla, and sugar. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
While some challenging topics from history will be discussed, this will be done in a very age-appropriate way, using American Girl as a guide. Campers may need to be supervised during activities that use such supplies as scissors and paint to ensure safety and reduce mess. It would be useful to pre-cut the tape measure into the shape of a bracelet with rounded edges. 
We will use photographs from each era where appropriate. Although these sources will not be directly used in class, information will be drawn from the following:
