Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
-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.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The novel does address death, which is connected to the theme of wilderness survival for animals and food webs. Discussions on this topic will be approached with sensitivity and care. This novel is recommended for ages 8 and up by parents and teachers, which is why the age range for this class is for students 9-12. 
Book: "The Wild Robot" by Peter Brown 

*There is no requirement to purchase the book, as the book will be provided virtually during class and all activities and discussions will occur during class time. The book is recommended for ages 8 and up according to parent and teacher reviews, which was a guideline for the creation of this class.
