Keeping up With the Kingdoms! (6-Day Science Camp)

In this 6 day camp, we will learn about life's six kingdoms in an informal, interactive format. Each day we will learn characteristics of one of life's kingdoms and meet members of that kingdom. We may use Kahoot! in some classes!

Description

Class Experience

Students will learn characteristics of living things, and the names and characteristics of the six kingdoms of life. Students will participate in conversations about each of life's six kingdoms by asking questions, contributing their own findings, synthesizing information, making connections, and summarizing. 
I've been studying science all my life. My father was a renowned herpetologist. As such, I grew up surrounded by animals, plants, and other life forms. I followed my interests in college by studying biology as well as education. I taught middle school science for 21 years, then worked as the middle school science education specialist for the State Department of Education in Alabama for 6 years. In retirement, I am still actively involved in many scientific communities, and stay engaged with groups such as the North American Association for Environmental Education and the National Science Teachers Association. I am passionate and knowledgeable about the study of life, and about passing on this passion to youngsters.
Optional homework will be assigned. Please check the classroom before each class for handouts.
Students should bring something to write with/on. I suggest a notebook, but that is not required. Colored pencils are encouraged. Students playing Kahoot! will need a second device, or will need to be able to open a new window on their computer. The Kahoot! app is optional.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be no formal assessment. At the end of each lesson, students will participate in a fun check for understanding. We will use Kahoot! in some classes.
2 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In some classes I will use YouTube for videos of 2 minutes or less to illustrate lessons.
For illustrations that are otherwise difficult to obtain, I may share my screen to original websites. I will only use websites that are educational, and we will only spend a minute or two on these sites.
