This course is not only great for bug, spider, science, and nature loving learners, everyone can benefit from learning about spiders! Why learn about spiders? Spiders are among the most common creatures we come in contact with in our daily lives. Unfortunately, they have also become one of the most commonly feared. Learning about them can help replace fear with curiosity, confidence, respect, and appreciation. Spiders are a wonderful topic because they are easy to find, which means they are...
This class is taught in English.
Students will come away with a rich knowledge of spiders they are likely to find in their homes and backyards. They will build a solid foundational understanding of major themes in biology including classification, structure and function, growth and development, and interaction with the environment and other organisms. Students will deep dive into specific families of spiders. The spiders we will cover are likely one learners will come across in their daily lives. We will use visualization, imagination, movement, games, and applied knowledge to see the world from a spider's perspective. Students will learn about these spiders' silk, webs, nests, sleep patterns, what they eat, how they get their food, how they sense the world, grooming habits, venom, behaviors, social tendencies, and more. Students will also develop skills in creating an academic journal. Finally, students will come away with a greater appreciation of these fascinating arachnids.
I love learning and teaching about all kinds of creatures, especially spiders! I have been interested in spiders since I was a kid myself. I have taught and worked with children for over 15 years in Montessori classrooms, in the home, out in nature, at camp, and in extracurricular and sports setting. In the majority of these settings I have had experience teaching one on one, small groups, large groups, planning curriculum, and teaching science related subjects. I have an associates degree in psychology and am working towards higher degrees in child and adolescent psychology with a focus on education. I love teaching and am endlessly fascinated by the developing brain.
Optional homework opportunities will be given to advance awareness, understanding, and curiosity of the weekly topics. Students are given the option of completing the assignments but will also be given the opportunity to share completed work with their classmates as we build our community of young spider scientists.
