Learn about the science of wildfires. List the benefits of wildfires. List and explain the causes of wildfires. Describe conditions that prompt wildfires. Explain where to expect wildfires. Explain how animals survive wildfires.
I have taken a two-week intensive course working with US Forestry Engineers as a science teacher. During this professional development, I participated in all aspects of forestry management. I am a state-licensed teacher and highly-qualified in teaching science and history to grades 2-9.
Students may want to research wildfires in their area. I will gladly help students find where to search for more information.
The teacher created guided-notes or notepaper and a pencil or pen.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
