Class Experience

-Students will learn about the various systems and interactions of the ocean. 
-Students will develop their critical thinking skills, asking and answering questions about the ocean during our discussions.
During my time working in Montessori schools I was given the opportunity to design and implement a summer camp program that integrated scientific and cultural exploration with hands-on projects. It was a joy to teach and assist my students as they conquered these previously uncharted territories and I am only too happy to replicate that adventure here on Outschool. I have taken various college level physical science courses including Oceanography. 
Home work will include Interactive quizzes, video responses, printable notes, supplementary videos, writing prompts, lap books, and foldables, collaborative class dictionary, class book. The length of time will vary per learner. 
Week 1- Deep Sea Spreading: Provided template, crayons or markers, scissors, tape. 

Week 2-Deep-sea features (trenches): A shoe box or small plastic container or tub. Modeling clay or playdough, construction paper, markers, toothpicks, tape, a pen or a marker to write labels.
