This class will use videos made by the teacher to learn about animals from around the world.

By the end of class, learners will know the definitions of the following words: mammal, bird, fish, reptile, amphibian, invertebrate, herbivore, carnivore, omnivore, predator, prey, habitat, adaptation, life cycle, and reproduce. Learners will create a book about these animals.
Learners will complete individual worksheets about each animal. They will create a book they can share with others. Each week's homework should take no more than one hour.
Learners will need paper, pencil/pen and either crayons, colored pencils, or markers. Parents will need to print the book page form for each learner. Parents will need a way to attach the cover to the book. Ms. Debbie will provide several options from which the parents can choose, or they may choose their own.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Ms. Debbie will post links to Youtube videos in the classroom. We will talk about life cycles and how some animals eat other animals.
