I am a Geologist and homeschool mom and I really enjoying bringing science to life for young learners.
There are no live meetings in this Flex class so students work at their own pace keeping in mind the due dates posted in the classroom. This work should take around 2 hours (maybe more for some students) each week.
Please see the course description.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
This course is presented in Nearpod. Students will be able to access it from the Outschool classroom via a code posted in advance. Students will not need to create an account to access the lessons.
