Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will develop the foundational science skills of observation, questioning and recording. 
Students will develop the skill of research as they look for information about their natural observations.
Students will also develop artistic skills as they draw what they see in nature.  
I have been a Charlotte Mason homeschool teacher for many years.  It is our preferred method of learning.  It is meant to inspire and give learners skills, tools and a desire to know more about the world around them.  Charlotte Mason teachers "spread the feast" and allow students to take what nourishes them.   
Students are encouraged to get outside at least once a week. 
They are to find at least one aspect of nature that is interesting to them.  
If possible, students may bring that item to class.   (For example a pinecone) 
Students may also bring a picture of what they found interesting. 
Optional: students can look up their object of interest in a field guide to share what they know with the group.
The Out-Of-Doors :) A notebook to keep record of their findings and to record information from classroom lessons. A pencil. Optional: Colored pencils, pencils, scissors, glue, printer, tape.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I may share a YouTube video to illustrate a lesson.   This will be previewed for appropriate content.
Learners have enjoyed drawing tutorials.  I will share links for these in the classroom.
I will sometimes have a Kahoot quiz for the students to enjoy in or out of class.
