Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding and learn about bats in their own area and from other parts of the world as students share their own experiences and stories. Maybe you've had bats in your attic! 
I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Ecology/Evolutionary Biology. I have worked for several seasons in the field researching bats, owls, frogs, snakes, and their interaction with their environment and sometimes with people. I care very much about the welfare of wildlife and hope I can convey that appreciation to your learner.
No homework. Students are invited to another general course on biology if they have questions or want to learn more.
For class, children may wish to bring a notebook with a pencil to make notes or sketch pictures of bats. They are always welcome to just listen in. Curiosity is always the best ingredient!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
none
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
None needed. No animals will be harmed or handled and there will be no depictions of harm coming to these special friends of mine.
The teacher may share a video segment from Youtube Kids that discusses bats with the students and will send any links for review to each student and their parent.
No account is necessary to view Youtube videos.
The teacher may show video clips from Youtube Kids on screen-share but, mainly uses slides and pictures from the work he has done with the Forest Service and biologists working in the field.
