Description

Class Experience

After participating in this moon talk, learners will be able to identify the phases of the moon in the sky using appropriate vocabulary and have a deeper understanding of the moon's role in space and in world cultures.
I am an experienced Environmental Educator. I have led field trips, hiking trips, and camping trips, and I served as Youth Education Coordinator for a land trust for two years through AmeriCorps-TerraCorps, during which time I created and taught Environmental Ed. curriculum for students in grades K-6.
REQUIRED: 6 oreo cookies- fully intact! Printout to be provided in the classroom OPTIONAL (if you're a super hands on person and want to do my demonstration at home along with me): A working lamp with the lamp shade removed Large Foam Ball on a stick (you can stick a pencil in it) Small Foam Ball on a stick (again- you can use a pencil)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please ensure students have the appropriate supplies for class. Also be aware- the class will briefly mention from a secular perspective, BUT NOT TEACH IN DEPTH ABOUT other aspects of a variety of cultures including the Chinese Moon Festival, Selene and Luna (Greek and Roman moon goddesses), Rosh Chodesh- the Jewish new moon, Tecciztaecatl the Aztec Moon God, and Mawu the African Moon God. The purpose of this discussion is to provide students with a basic awareness of world cultures and to demonstrate how we are linked to each other through our ability to see celestial bodies and celebrate them through storytelling and tradition.
