Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the different rock types that construct the layers of the Earth's crust: sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous. How they are made and then create their own model representation with chocolate! 
I’m a compassionate and charismatic teacher who loves to teach! I have taught Kindergarten through 5th grade students for the last 10 years. In that time, I have been a general education teacher in the public schools setting for 8 years and specialized as a reading coach to my school for an additional two years. I have been teaching online since February 2020 and am now a full time Outschool teacher! I’m certified to teach Elementary education from Kindergarten to 6th grade. I absolutely love teaching First Grade. I taught First Grade for 8 years and it is one of my favorite grades to teach. One of the largest academic transformations occurs in First Grade. I have taught these lessons in the public school setting with many students who have mastered the content. I’m looking forward to sharing this fun class with your wonderful student!
-Two types of chocolate bars that have been prepared into shavings or chopped- at least a 1/4 cup of chocolate shaving needed of each type of chocolate. (white, milk, dark chocolate can be used)
-a bowl of hot/ boiling water
-a bowl of cold- ice water
- tin or aluminum foil
- cheese grater: to be used before class to create chocolate shavings
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
-Chocolate ingredient used- please be aware for food allergens- Chocolate is the most suitable material to use for this experiment. You can also use cheese, vegan chocolate, or even candle wax. Please advise that the boiling point of this substitution will impact the end results modeled during class*******
-Hot/ boiling water for melting chocolate and cheese grater for creating chocolate shaving. Please use parental guidance and supervision with these two elements of our class. Students can cut themselves while creating shaving and will need support preparing their chocolate before class. Hot water can burn students and will need to be monitored during class for safety.
