Class Experience

By the end of the class, students should be able to:

🌷 Explain why fungi and plants are not in the same kingdom of life.
🌷 Describe the difference between a spore and a seed.
🌷 Name the two other types of fungi besides mushrooms.
🌷 Identify some spore bearing plants.
🌷 Describe the differences between spore-bearing plants, gymnosperms, and angiosperms.
🌷 List the different parts of an angiosperm plant.
🌷 Describe some plant and fungi Pokemon, and the things they have in common with real plants and fungi.
🌷 Explain the difference between a consumer, a decomposer, and a producer.
Weeks 2 and 4 are homework projects. Parents can determine how much/little time they want their learner to spend doing this project. They can also choose to opt out of the projects entirely, and just enjoy the recorded presentations in weeks 1 and 3.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We do talk about plant reproduction very briefly in this class, and I compare it to sperm and egg reproduction in humans. I don't go into any details, but some students might feel discomfort or confusion if they haven't yet learned about how mammals create babies.
