How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Description

Class Experience

Students will learn all about gems, geodes, and much more. 
None
You do need a hammer or something to break the geodes. Goggles should come with the kit, but if not, please make sure your student has goggles or protective glasses. You will also need space and a hard surface that cannot be hurt by cracking these open. Choose ONE of these kits to order for the last day of class. If you want to order another kit with more geodes, you can, but please make sure it is similar to these. I have included a variety of kits and prices to choose from. Any geode kit will work. This is not required but if they do not have one, it will be a bit boring for them to sit and watch others do it. https://www.amazon.com/National-Geographic-Break-Premium-Geodes/dp/B0160JB7IS/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=geode+kit&qid=1599167255&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyM0ZUNFZKTVlYRUpKJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNzY0OTAxSEcyMFRQOUowT0JaJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA2OTY0MDlVT0tDRUtBRUI5OEUmd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl https://www.amazon.com/Gem-Center-U-S-A-byogamz-Geodes/dp/B000W7NP8U/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=geode+kit&qid=1599167297&sr=8-6   https://www.amazon.com/NATIONAL-GEOGRAPHIC-Detailed-Mineralogy-Enthusiasts/dp/B0160JBC6K/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=geode+kit&qid=1599167297&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzUzZZTEg0V1hKTVU3JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNzM4NjI1MzBWQllFUDZZWEpMRCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMjg2MDA1QUowT1E4NjNGQVJSJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ== https://www.amazon.com/Discover-Dr-Cool-Break-Geodes/dp/B00G9Y1DNE/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=break+geodes&qid=1599167351&sr=8-5 https://www.amazon.com/Discover-Dr-Cool-Including-Moroccan/dp/B07D5MZZNC/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=break+geodes&qid=1599167366&sr=8-5   
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be assessed by their participation and interaction.
2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Some parental guidance may be needed for the breaking of geodes if your student is younger.
