Description

Class Experience

1. Students will learn facts about the physical characteristics of Green Sea Turtles such as size, features, diet and ocean habitat. 
2. Students will learn how scientists use these characteristics to compare and classify marine reptiles like sea turtles. 
3. Students will learn why conservation of the Green Sea Turtle is important and what is being done to prevent the extinction of this marine reptile. 
4. Students will also learn new vocabulary words related to the study of Green Sea Turtles and ocean science.
As a child, I developed a strong love of nature and animals. Learning about and then teaching science became my passion in life and so I taught classroom science to preschool and elementary aged students for almost twenty years before coming to the Outschool platform.
There will be optional educational materials available in the classroom after class for learning extension. This class and its activities can provide a great way to develop, enrich or follow a learner's interests, as well as supplementing any school or homeschool learning program.

*Learner Supply List: 1. Print Pack: (attached to the welcome message in the classroom and visible if you are logged in as the LEARNER) Contains the activity sheets for identifying (by labeling, matching or coloring) the characteristics of a Green Sea Turtle. If you can't print, students can bring paper and draw their own, or just follow along onscreen. 2. Paper (example: notebook or loose paper) 3. Pencils or Crayons and Markers 4. A Certificate, Fact and Vocabulary sheet and additional educational materials for learning extension will be available in the classroom as a download after class.
Students will be learning concepts of science along with the opportunity to further develop their math, geography, vocabulary and creative thinking skills during class. I try to pace the class so I can reserve the last ten minutes for questions, reflection and student sharing. This is a fun type of closing activity that helps students organize and reflect what they have learned. There will also be additional educational materials available in the classroom after class for extended learning.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
NO scary or violent content here, just scientific facts presented in a positive way to encourage learning and scientific discovery.
NO third-party teaching tools will be used in this class. 
Here are the science resources I used as SOURCE MATERIAL to develop the science lesson for this class. They are NOT used as third-party teaching tools:
Oceana
Monterey Bay Aquarium
Sea Turtle Conservancy
