This class is a hands-on learning class where children recreate models or systems of how ocean creatures live.

Class experience

US Grade 1 - 4
Beginner Level
Students will learn the five oceans, why are they salty, and what creatures live in them.
I love teaching oceanography! I have a wide collection of specimens and shells. Having been a Biology teacher for thirty-five years has allowed me to teach students about ocean life. Every summer, I offer Oceanography summer camps for kids. I now want to offer this same experience on Outschool.
Homework Offered
If I do assign homework, it will be a coloring sheet pertaining to what we have learned in class.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I assess students orally through questions and answers.
Grades Offered
 4 files available upon enrollment

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I suggest a parent be closeby because children may have difficulty cutting or tying things. Also, closing jars tightly may be an issue. 
I highly recommend spreading a towel over the surface if needed to prevent spills.
