Class experience

US Grade 2 - 5
Beginner Level
  • The main goal of this class, and every class, is to launch a lifetime of space curiosity for my students. Students will discover several events that led to a better understanding of not just our Solar System, but far beyond as well. We will discuss monumental moments that transformed that way we explore space and talk about how these remarkable moments have led to unbelievable accomplishments, such as the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, and the $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope.
I have several years experience as a science teacher. Space exploration is one of the most fascinating topics to me, and I have found the enthusiasm with this subject is contagious! 😊

No outside materials needed.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The 2nd class of this camp will cover the Space Shuttle Program, which was extraordinarily successful, but also had a couple unfortunate missions: the Challenger and the Columbia. We will respectfully discuss the bravery, courage, and leadership of all 14 astronauts on these 2 missions, but we will also briefly talk about their tragic outcomes. Some learners have questions and want to know a little more, and I will assess the situation class by class. I will keep the conversation simple, considerate, and brief. If your learner is particularly sensitive to the topic, please let me know! Participation for that class is given to the parent/guardian's discretion for that day.  I don't mind issuing a coupon for a future class or a partial refund for that day if requested.
If relevant to the discussion, we may refer to NASA's website (solarsytem.nasa.gov) to try to locate where particular spacecraft are in the solar system. This is a fantastic website for students to explore. It is very informative and has "kid friendly" sections for younger minds to better understand.
