Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of Earth science topics to include renewable and non-renewable resources, the processes used to harvest the natural resources from the Earth's crust, the difference and similarities between minerals and rocks, and the characteristics of gems and precious metals. 
Your student loves Minecraft, so use it as a tool to learn! The course instructor has over 10 years of experience as a professional educator using technology tools as a motivator for learning and currently holds active teaching licenses in the states of Nevada and Texas.
Optional quizzes will be available to all students. If there is not enough time during the week to complete these, they can be saved by the learner onto their computer and completed on their own time. 
Each student must have a working version of Minecraft. The cost of Minecraft is not included with the course fee. Live classes in Zoom will require active student participation. An optional quiz and answer key on the science topic of the day will be posted to the Outschool classroom after each class session. PDF documents may be saved to your computer or printed.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learner progress is assessed in the live Zoom session by participating in live class instruction and by posting/sharing their work to the discussion area of the online Outschool classroom.  
5 hours per week in class, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
Parents should be available to assist their learners with any technical issues, especially on day 1, as learners join Zoom at the beginning of the class and access the daily learning materials through the online classroom.
