Class Experience

Students will compare the ancient environment of the Pleistocene period to the environment today.
Students will identify prehistoric creatures of the Pleistocene period.
Students will examine features of organisms, such as teeth, to infer how they ate.
Students will discuss adaptations that creatures can use to defend themselves from predators.
I teach classes and camps at the American Museum of Natural History about prehistoric times.
Learners will use coloring supplies, such as markers or crayons, to complete their Pleistocene book. All printouts will be provided by the instructor. If you can't print out the pictures, your learner can use them as reference while making their own drawing.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There will be age appropriate references to predation, extinction, and fossilization. Images of fossils, artist representations, and preserved remains from ice will be shown.
