Class Experience

This class allows learners to learn about what a rainforest is, and how it is a valuable ecosystem. This class allows learners to harness their skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM), and Mindfulness, making it a well rounded class for your learner(s). 
I am an experienced conservation educator. I have a certification on being a compassionate educator from Jane Goodall's Roots and Shoot Program, and Project WILD certified as well.
Learners will provide their own crafting materials to make their diorama during this course. For the first class, a shoebox (or any good sized box), brown construction paper (or any brown paper), and glue will be necessary. For the following weeks, materials may include, but are not limited to:
1. crafting materials, like construction paper, pipe cleaners, felt, pom poms - any crafting materials already available in your home 
            will work. Be creative!
2. natural materials, like twigs, leaves, pine cones, rocks, 
3. LEGOs
4. animal and nature toys
5. glue
6. scissors

Use your creativity and resourcefulness to create a rainforest diorama that is unique and wonderful -  just as you are unique and wonderful!
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
