I have taught elementary math and science for four years. I am certified to teach K-12 art. I am also certified to teach all subjects (k-6). Art and design are personal hobbies of mine.
No homework will be assigned.
1 file available upon enrollmentBasic Lego kits will suffice. While I suggest specific pieces, we can always improvise with the pieces that your child has. Having a collection (20+ pieces) of 1x2 blocks, 2x2 blocks, 2x3 blocks, 2x4 blocks, or a mixture of these blocks will help add height to your Lego skyscrapers.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will end class by providing open-ended challenges and ideas that students can explore on their own. I will also provide resources for students interested in learning more about the topic.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
