Haven't you ever wondered about the world around you and the living creatures that live in it? In looking at different animals and habitats, students will learn about a variety of biomes, natural habitats and adaptations made by plant and animal life in their environments as well as other parts of the world. Take for instance the polar bear who has adapted to not only extremely cold conditions but can hunt for food on land and in the sea. Students will also learn about other animals such as...
My entire life I wanted to explore the ocean and the environment. I have always had a great appreciation for the processes that are not completely understood and the unknowns that have yet to be discovered in the environment. In the beginning of my professional career in research, I worked as a naturalist on a whale watch boat and as a laboratory technician working on environmental clean up projects such as water and land pollution. Then I moved into my dream job of being a research chemist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in marine & geochemistry where I was able to be in the foundation of the research community and learn from many amazing scientists & researchers who devoted their life to exploring the mysteries of the environment as well as protecting the animals and organisms living in it. For me, working as a student mentor with graduate and post graduate students, made this experience one I will always cherish. As a teacher, I want my students to be excited about what they are learning and with my background in research, I will work extra hard to make sure that if there is an aspect of a topic that a student is interested in, I will make every effort to alter my lessons to include those topics.
Links to relevant websites will be provided by the teacher, there are no materials required to purchase.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
