I.) Meet Dr. Annie II.) Classroom Expectations III.) Course Overview IV.) Hook a. Introduce our resident chickens b. Scientific story telling c. Discussion/asking questions V.) Relevance a. Chickens have unique behaviors b. Different breeds of chickens behave differently c. Studying behavior is a way to engage with biology VI.) Introduction to Our Learners VII.) Chicken Biology VIII.) Chicken Behavior IX.) How Do Scientists Study Chicken Behavior? X.) Thought...
Students will be able to: • describe the basic biology of chickens • tell a parent or caregiver about the typical behavior of chickens • describe the natural history of chickens (e.g. diet, housing, social behavior, etc.) • share one reason why scientists study the behavior of chickens • observe the behavior of chickens and ask questions like a scientist
Students should complete the following brief activities before class: 1. Knowledge Inventory: what do you already know? 2. Thinking Like a Scientist: watch one short clip of chicken behavior and write down two questions you have about what you saw.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Student learning will primarily be assessed by active participation in the classroom. I encourage all students to ask questions and engage with our learning community. However, I do understand that some students learn best through quiet observation and reflection.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
