Parents are encouraged to review the standards from this link-https://doe.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/ndedoenvgov/content/CTE/Programs/Agriculture_and_Natural_Resources/Standards/Animal-Science-STDS-ADA.pdf Mrs. Collins will be using the NV, UGA, 4-H, and FFA Animal Science standards. Animal Science Standards: Students will apply scientific principles in the selection of animals. Discuss the origin and importance of agricultural animals. Explain domestication and its contributions to animal agriculture. Evaluate the adaptation of animals to production practices. State the scientific and common names of major animal agriculture species in various states. Classify animal species based on their agricultural uses. Discuss genetic inheritance in agricultural animals. Learn animal terminology. Learn types of animal breeds. Identify major external parts of agricultural animals. Utilize breed and type characteristics in animal selection. Describe how milk and milk products are produced, processed and graded. Identify consumer products that are derived from by-products of animal production. Identify and grade poultry products, including eggs. Describe the impact of food safety issues on animal production. Identify and evaluate services and benefits that come from agricultural animals.
Mrs. Collins is a certified science teacher in the areas of Ag Education, Middle & High School Science, and Gifted Education. She has taught science for over 23 years. In addition, she completed her Ag Education program at UGA and taught undergraduate Animal Science 101 , Animal Science 102, Animal Genetics, and Sheep & Goat Production. She also completed 7 years working as an assistant and blood tech in a veterinary hospital. Her knowledge and fun attitude helps bring animal science to life in a unique way for students to learn about the field of animal science.
Students will be given assignment, group projects, discussion questions, and outside of class projects to work on to improve comprehension. *Students will be encouraged to find food products related to the animal of the week to try. For example, during goat week students are encouraged to find some goat milk or cheese at the store to try and give a review to the group.
2 files available upon enrollmentspiral notebook computer paper to diagram on ruler stapler tape clear sticky notes (optional but many students state it is helpful with practice) ziploc bags notecards highlighter posterboard (2) gloves scissors plastic cups paper plates clay or play dough rotisserie chicken for chicken anatomy lesson (or raw chicken carcass) toothpicks computer paper construction paper duct tape tissue paper glue watercolor paint set with brush **Some students enjoy creating a scrapbook type book instead of putting notes in a spiral, both ideas are welcome. We will be doing diagrams of different animals, writing down common animal vocabulary, etc so either will work. Students will be asked to try different animal products-goat cheese, goat milk, goat lotion, dairy milk, dairy cheese, pork products, chicken products, etc and share with the group.

This class will feature a unit on animal reproduction terms, and gestation. ------- Please carefully read the class description, review the supply list, and reach out if you have questions. Outschool disclaimer: Please look over the supply list and do not use any items the child maybe allergic to. -------- Class Information For Parents: I am only a small piece of your homeschool puzzle. My goal is to provide your family quality curriculum, fun labs, crafts and assessment tools. I have over 23 years of experience in the classroom and homeschooling my own children. Over the years I have taught in the private, public and college setting providing quality labs and curriculum. I currently write science curriculum for 3 states to be used in public school classrooms. Over the years I have improved my craft by taking countless professional development on assessment methods, how to integrate technology into the classroom, and hands-on activities that promote learning. I am now taking my experience to provide quality curriculum for homeschool families. Third Party Tools: In my classes I use the following at times to help with comprehension: YouTube summary videos, Loom (I create how to videos), Quizizz, Quizlet, Nearpod, Flipgrid, Google Docs, and Google Slides. Outschool would like us to list all third party tools we may use in the class description. Assessments: Because my classes are flex, the option for live testing is not included. Instead I have a paid premium teacher membership to Quizizz and Quizlet. When it is time for an assessment I provide the student a website link and special code to take the test. Quizizz and Quizlet both grade test immediately for the family and allow the student the option to retest for a higher grade. Then students are asked to write down the grade, test name and date in their spiral on the "test score" page. All flex parents are asked to look at the spiral and test score page periodically to keep informed and to see how well the student is progressing in the class. If you are participating in a co-op that requires live testing, please let me know. I have a special Outschool one day option add-on that you can use for live testing. You can simply request the time/day for live testing that works for you. I have found that some flex parents use my Quizizz/Quizlet tests, but some families opt out of testing so it is whatever works best for your family. But I do provide the assessments if you would like to use them. Once the student is on the testing site via my special code they may also use the site for test over other subjects also. How To Grade: I recommend that parents add up all of the test scores at the end of the session, and divide by the number of test to get the final average for the class. At the end of the class I provide a general letter of completion that can be used for your records or charter/private/co-op use. If you need me to put a specific average on the letter, I am more than happy to just let me know the average your child has or seen me a list of their test scores to average. Upon registration you will see key information attached to the first post to go over as a family. It includes the science spiral template, class expectations, and info on 3rd party tools used for comprehension.
