Having traveled there myself, I can attest to this! In this FLEX class, learners will learn about much of the wildlife that call the Galapagos Islands home – some of which can’t be...
By the end of the four classes, students would have learned the basics about the following: 1) Wildlife - 10 different animals that can be found on The Galapagos Islands (some of which are solely found in this area). We will learn what they eat, behaviours, and fascinating facts of these creatures. 2) Darwin - We will touch on Darwin's voyage around these islands and his findings in evolution and natural selection 3) Ecosystems - We will discuss the different ecosystems found on these islands and how they differ 4) Adaptations - Tying into Darwin's discoveries, we will discuss what adaptations are and some examples. Students will apply their knowledge of this to the animals that we learn about in this course and beyond. 5) Threats - We will have conversations about what threats The Galapagos Islands are facing and what people are doing to help conserve this amazing place.
I have been to these islands so many videos and pictures are of my journey. In addition, I have a degree in zoology and education.
Homework assignments, additional fun activities, tasks, and supplemental videos will be posted each week. Online discussions will be prompted and students are responsible for joining in the discussion each week. In addition, there will also be optional fun quizzes to do weekly through Kahoot!
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
During the second class, we touch briefly on Charles Darwin and his theory of Natural Selection. Since this goes hand in hand with his other theories and discoveries, Evolution will be briefly mentioned as well (though not discussed in depth)
