You can request another time or scroll down to find more classes like this.
In each class we will get to see different live "minibeasts" (roly polies, millipedes, slugs, etc.). We will watch how they move, observe their different physical characteristics, and talk about what they eat and where they live. We will learn about life cycles and food chains. Learners will be encouraged to share pictures, stories, and observations about the different creatures we study (or any other cool bugs they find) during "show and tell" each week. We will also be singing, drawing,...
We will learn about the habits, behavior, and anatomy of tiny creatures living in our own backyards. We will learn to take turns and pay attention while others are sharing information. We will learn to sort bugs based on different characteristics. We will learn to draw some minibeasts.
I have a B.S. in zoology, NC Early Childhood Education Credentials, and years of preschool teaching experience. I am fascinated by bugs and excited to share my love of tiny creaures with others!
Drawing materials (several sheets of paper and crayons, colored pencils or markers)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
