Class Experience

-Explain the pH scale
-Differentiate between acids and bases
-Explain the difference between a physical and chemical reaction
I am a certified K-6 teacher with over 20 years experience teaching in public, private, and homeschool environments.  I have also homeschooled my own 4 children and founded an independent microschool for grades K-8.  For over 2 years I have been teaching online here on Outschool, engaging students from all over the world! 
Generally students only have homework if they didn't finish a lab, or if they need to do a quick (usually a page) reading for the next class.  
Upon enrollment you will be given a fully detailed supply list.  Most of the materials are items you might find around the house (coffee filter, rubber bands, etc.), but there will be some items you will need to purchase or borrow, including:

-potassium chloride (salt substitute)
-science thermometer
-hydrogen peroxide
-red cabbage
-rubbing alcohol

All students will need a copy of the REAL Science Odyssey Student Pages, available here for $19 (ebook) or $$28 (print book):  
Students who have been in a previous class from this series WILL NOT need to purchase it again.  

Students will also need a 3-ring binder to keep their journal pages.  
As a teacher I am constantly assessing my students informally to make sure they are understanding the material.  Upon the parent's request I can provide a written evaluation for completing the course.  
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Some of the supplies used in this class may need adult supervision, including, but not limited to:  
-potassium chloride
-rubbing alcohol
-hydrogen peroxide

In addition, some of the labs in this class require cooking.  All cooking will be done either OUTSIDE of class (instructions and prep are done during class) or WITH ADULT SUPERVISION.
