Have you ever wondered what it was like during prehistoric times? Would you like to know more about the prehistoric creatures that came before the dinosaurs? This class is tailored to younger learners who enjoy prehistoric times and would like to meet more amazing species up close and personal! This class will introduce you to eight fascinating creatures of the Permian period! Each week, we will spotlight a new species of prehistoric reptile, amphibian, shark, or insect, looking at fossils...
Students will compare the ancient environment of the Permian period to the environment today. Students will identify prehistoric creatures of the Permian period. Students will distinguish between dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. Students will examine features of organisms, such as teeth, to infer how they ate. Students will discuss adaptations that creatures can defend themselves from predators.
I teach classes and camps at the American Museum of Natural History about prehistoric times, including a workshop on the Permian.
Learners will use coloring supplies, such as markers or crayons, to complete their Permian book. All printouts will be provided by the instructor. If you can't print out the pictures, your learner can use them as reference while making their own drawing.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
