Description

Class Experience

-learn about our beautiful animals that are endangered or threatened and need our help
-beginning techniques in note-taking
-learning the basic format of a paragraph and practicing writing
I've been around animals my entire life and have worked with them professionally 95% of my adult life.  I was previously a Registered Veterinary Technician (Animal Nurse) for 10 years and I also have degrees in Zoo Keeping, Animal Training, and Wildlife Education from America's Teaching Zoo at Moorpark College. I have 11 years of experience as a Wildlife and Eco Educator. I've worked at Zoos, was the Lead Supervisor of a Zoo Day Camp for children, and also founded a non-profit organization that provided hands-on animal education programs.  Teaching children and families about the animals and planet is truly my passion!
 1 file available upon enrollment
2 pieces of blank paper and pencil. This can be lined paper or not. There is a template for note taking in the classroom tab that you can print. If it's not printed I will be guiding the learners in setting up their note taking page.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In this class we discuss the reason animals are endangered which is almost always the result of human habits and activities on the planet. This can evoke strong emotions for some children (it's ok... it does for me too).  
Depending on the animal of the week we do occasionally discuss adaptations and evolution of animal species.  All information in this class is science-based.
We regularly discuss the need for animals to be able to find each other in nature for breeding purposes.  I do not go into any details about how animals breed.  I do discuss that they need to find each other, the impacts on populations when they can't, and the various reasons that cause them to not find each other.
