I am offering this course because I have a masters in teaching and experience teaching elementary level science.  I am a former classroom teacher, turned homeschool mom who loves to teach in a variety of environments.  I have taught all subjects, but getting students excited about science and nature through hands on, interactive learning is my passion.  
No homework is assigned for this course.  
Week One: A mineral to share & print out of minerals vs rocks activity (see resources) Week Two: mineral set or 5 different minerals, a penny, a paper clip, a rock, & a science notebook Week Three: pipe cleaners, 1-2 pencils, 1 cup borax, string/thread, scissors, heat resistant measuring cup/jar, a tablespoon & access to hot water (microwave) Week Four: world map printable (see resources) and coloring tools
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There are no assessments for this course.  Students will show their understanding through class discussions, hands on activities and experiments.  
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
