Class Experience

Each student will improve his/her understanding of things in their environment that are transparent, translucent and those that are opaque, and sharpen their reasoning skills to help them test theories and expand their understanding of their world.
I am offering this class because it will help students make connections in their minds between things they have experienced, and assist them in finding answers to their many questions they are so curious about.  This will give them the opportunity to develop a love of learning, and especially, a love of science.  As a Montessori teacher, I understand, and have been privy to see on a daily basis, children's need to explore with their senses.  According to Dr. Montessori, children experience life, learn and develop intelligence through the use of touch, sight, smell, taste and sound.  It is based on this experience, I believe, that I am a good teacher to teach this lesson, and offer it in this unique manner.
No homework is assigned.  
A flashlight, a beautiful array of various materials, such as, foil, paper, plastic, wood, glass, glass or plastic bottle with colored water, book, leaf, small towel, wax paper, bottle of clear water, milk, a drinking glass, etc. Three small mats or rugs for children to categorize their items. Pre-written labels or pencil and paper for children to label their categories independently
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be assessed in an informal informative manner to assess their understanding of the materials.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
