Description

Class Experience

Students will be able to explore through lecture, experiments, demonstrations, homework, and discussion the five fields of Earth Science....astronomy, geology, environmental science, meteorology, and oceanography.
I was a middle school science teacher for 10 years. I have also homeschooled my daughter for 7 years. As a public school teacher, I taught Earth Science, Chemistry, Physicial Science, Zoology, Biology, and more to hundreds of students. Science is a passion of mine and I find performing experiments both fascinating and illuminating when learning new scientific facts! In this class, students will have ample opportunity to perform their own experiments to reiterate the information they learn in class. I have my Bachelor's degree in Biology/Pre-Med and a Master's in Healthcare Administration.
Homework is assigned each week at the end of class. Homework will be posted in the classroom. Please allow 1-2 hours for homework each week. Homework consists of home experiments as well as occasional worksheets.
Pencil Markers Paper Clay Food coloring Orange/Grapefruit Variety of liquid syrups (maple, corn, honey) Limestone Vinegar Sugar cubes Paper towels Funnel (3 would be amazing) Sand Clay (again :-) Chalk Straws Thermometer
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
A letter grade will be given for each homework assignment that is uploaded. The parent will receive a teacher feedback report on the student's progress at the end of the course.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
All experiments utilize household materials. Some experiments may be messy. Please read homework beforehand to determine if experiments need to be performed outside to save the house from a mess :-)
