Class experience

US Grade Pre-Kindergarten - 2
Students will learn about the prehistoric world of dinosaurs. Students will learn about what paleontologists do and practice building their skills of observation as they look at real fossils and practice measuring, collecting data, and sharing information.  Students will be able to identify popular dinosaurs from each period of the Mesozoic Era, and will observe and recreate them in hands-on activities.  Students will learn about timelines and will practice creating their own.  Students will learn new vocabulary words related to the topic as well as interesting new facts, and engage in guided discussion about their favorite dinosaurs and what they have learned.
I'm so excited to share my love of dinosaurs with you!  I've been teaching STEAM topics like dinosaurs to preschool through middle school for 8 years through an independent STEAM education company, and I'm really looking forward to connecting with new students here on Outschool.  Not only will we be learning about dinosaurs, but we'll sneak in some colors, numbers and math, comparing and contrasting, observation, movement and more--all things that pre-K, kindergartners and 1st graders love to learn and practice!
Homework Offered
Homework will be assigned on a weekly basis, but will be optional. Assignments will be used as a way to reinforce lesson material and to allow students to explore the topics in greater detail based on their own interests. Research, drawing, and fact-finding will be incorporated into these assignments, which will be shared and discussed via the "classroom" wall (posts, videos, photos, text replies and comments).
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
No formal assessment but teacher feedback will be provided on all submitted work. If you need personal feedback for your learner regarding their class progress, please message me at any time to discuss via text or a 1:1 private meeting.
Grades Offered
Students should provide their own paper, pencil, coloring supplies (crayons, markers, colored pencils, etc), playdough or sculpting clay, building blocks such as snap-together-style building bricks, magnetic blocks, or wooden blocks.  Dinosaur toys or models are helpful but not required.
Some projects may require cutting with scissors or other basic construction.  Adult supervision or assistance may be required at the discretion of the parent, based on the individual student's capabilities and limitations. All creative projects will be age-appropriate in their nature and difficulty.
Allergy Note: Playdough may contain wheat, which could cause an allergic reaction if ingested in those sensitive to wheat gluten or with Celiac disease.  I am happy to provide a recipe for gluten-free playdough upon request, or suggest alternative supplies.
