Description

Class Experience

Learners will be able to draw and illustrate a number of herbs as well as identify plants and work out where they are located in the wild.
I have taught four other classes on Outschool which discuss this subject in detail. I take this class from a historical and botanical perspective, describing how herbs were used in history, as well as biomes/weather that these plants are located in. I make it quite clear to students that these herbs are not to be used for medical purposes, while empathizing the fantasy aspect of their uses in the book.
Paper and pencils and/or other drawing devices will be needed during class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The Warriors series by Erin Hunter contains death and violence. The herbs described in this class are used in relation to this violence. Warriors is a series directed at 8-12 year olds. Parents are best aware if Warriors is suitable or not for their children.
Warriors by Erin Hunter is used for inspiration.

Just like one of the Erin Hunters, I feel it suitable to mention that many of these herbs are taken from Culpeper's Herbal Remedies by Nicolas Culpeper. This is used as historical reference.
