Class Experience

The goal is to help students compare and contrast animals the way scientists did in order to organize them. They will learn the history and methods they took on to complete this huge undertaking of sorting life on Earth.
Having been a Science instructor for middle and high school students for over thirty-five years, I have enjoyed teaching about animals in my Biology and Life Science classes. I myself grew up with many different pets during my lifetime. With an array of animals experience, I was able to teach my students. I still have the passion to teach children all about animals.
Optional memorization and handout activities that are easy to do.
 2 files available upon enrollment
Computer paper or a sketch pad will be needed for the student to make diagrams and draw various animal characteristics. Optional Reference Books Nonfiction: Animal: The Definitive Visual Guide to the World's Wildlife by David Burnie National Geographic Encyclopedia of Animals by Karen McGhee The Encyclopedia of Animals: A Complete Visual Guide by George McKay A Life in the Wild: George Schaller's Struggle to Save the Last Great Beasts by Pamela Turner
Students understanding is assessed orally through review of the course.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I may show students some preserved specimens during this class. I just wanted to bring this to the parent's attention.
