Spanning from December to February, Winter Holidays bring about many different creatures from Christmas, Kwanzaa, Pancha Ganapati, Hanukkah, and Yule, so come learn about mythology, cryptozoology, history, and their real-life animal counterparts (if they exist)!

Class experience

US Grade 2 - 5
Students will learn about different mythical creatures, their mythology, and what their real-life counterparts are (if they have any). They will work on their discussion skills, and make connections to history and existing animals. 
I am a historian, scientist, and member of the LGBTQIA+/queer community (asexual, panromantic; she/her/hers). I teach mythology, science, and pop culture classes here on Outschool. 

I graduated from George Mason University with a Bachelor of Arts in History with a minor in Forensic Science and a focus on mythology and research. But I have been a teacher for over 8 years, working with students from toddlerhood to teenage and beyond. I have always encouraged students to learn based on their own learning styles, so my classes incorporate different varieties of learning, including interactive elements.

Mythology has always been something I have researched and been fascinated by. I took classes during my Bachelor's program that focused on Greek, Asian, and Irish mythology, but they also expanded into other areas, which I now focus on in my Outschool classes. 
1 file available upon enrollment
A handout will be available in the classroom upon enrollment. Students can print it out or take notes on their own. Students will need pencils and if they want to add color to their activity, they can bring art materials, such as crayons, colored pencils, or markers with them.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • YouTube (used by teacher in PowerPoint)
Mythical creatures can have more intense backgrounds and mythology, so aspects such as destruction, violence, drowning, kidnapping, and murder may arise as to explain these creatures and their methods but I will not dwell on them in the class and will try to keep students from focusing on those aspects. If your student is more sensitive to these topics or gets scared easily, you may want to stay in the same room with them or check on them throughout the class.

We will be talking about and seeing images of a "creepy creature" (scarier than other creatures) at the end, I will have warnings so if students do not want to be scared, they are welcome to head out and they will not miss anything other than that creature!

We may also watch short scenes of the creatures from movies that may have a PG, PG-13, or possibly even R rating, but I will not show any explicit scenes, they will only be used to show the creatures and their methods. 

We will be watching short scenes of the creatures from the following media:
