-Students will connect readings to a variety of themes discussed in class. -Students will learn about Biomimicry, Ecosystems and Food Webs, and Ecosystem Engineers (from readings, videos, and discussions). -Students will write their own ending to the novel, to practice creative writing.
For the final class, we will be doing a creative writing activity. If students can bring writing utensils (paper, pen, etc.) and paper that would be great. Students can also use technology of their choice for writing, and can also use visual or auditory technology if that is more comfortable for them. We want everyone to feel comfortable and enjoy the creative writing process! *Book is NOT required, it will be provided virtually to students during class time
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
