Description

Class Experience

Students will explore the planets and moons of the Solar System in the context of Ancient Greek and Roman myths.
I teach astronomy at the American Museum of Natural History and look forward to sharing my love of the solar system with you!
Learners will have the option of completing additional trading cards for characters mentioned during class.
Supplies for the trading card project:
-provided printout (can opt to print double sided, or learner can use scissors and glue stick to attach the cards after creating them single sided)
-pencil and eraser
-preferred coloring supplies
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Greek and Roman myths contain references to sexuality, violence, and mortality. These references will be addressed in passing in a developmentally appropriate and sensitive manner.
We will be drawing from sources such as Homer's Iliad and D'Aulaires Book of Greek Myths. All stories will be retold in the instructor's original words using public domain images.
