Observe the behaviors of animals at different stages of their life cycle Understand animal classifications
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. I am also a veteran homeschool mom. I have homeschooled all of my children. I am a big believer in adapting the course content to each students learning style. There are three basic learning styles: auditory (hearing), visual (seeing), and tactile (touching). In each lesson I strive to address all three learning styles. Colorful google slides are used for visual learners, and the STEM and craft projects are ideal for tactile learners. I look forward to seeing you in the classroom. Mrs. Lori
I will post PDF's and additional reading material that the students may complete after the class if they wish. I encourage all students to bring a notebook to class although it is not required.
We will have a Diorama project in this class. ** This project is optional Materials Needed: Empty box Animal cutouts (I will send you the PDF ) Crayons/ markers Glue
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I will send out worksheets and reading materials each week prior to class. I also post videos and additional reading material in the classroom page.
