Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn about fossils, when and where they have been discovered, what they are, how they are created, and what they have taught us.
Annette the Teacher has been teaching for a very long time. She has over three decades of experience teaching children of all ages. She has a B.A. in Sociology with minors in Biology, Chemistry, and Writing from the University of Pittsburgh. She has homeschooled her own children from Pre-School through (their current) High School. All of her classes are interactive. Annette encourages students to fully participate in class. All of her classes feature hands-on activities and books Annette writes for the class herself.

Annette is a published writer, publisher, and artist. She uses her extensive knowledge and experience to create unique classes for every student. She enjoys teaching science, history, art, and cooking classes. She brings history alive with her "Life in ..." history classes where students learn about key times in history by experiencing children and families' lives in that time period. "Paint like ..." art classes where students will learn about famous artists and create their own artwork based on the artists' works. "Smart Science" classes where we explore science and complete experiments and projects. Kid Cuisine classes are cooking classes for Young Chefs based on historic foods and science topics. Students should be prepared to make, explore, and create during class. Annette knows hands-on, interactive experiences are the best way for children to learn.

Annette also has experience working with Special Needs children. She is Mom to a child on the autism spectrum and a child with serious medical needs. She also has worked with children with ADHD. If your child has special needs, please contact Annette so she can work with you and your child.
There is no homework, but students will need to have the required materials ready at the start of class to complete the class project.

Hello. Welcome to my Fossils Class. We will explore fossils during class. You will get to see real fossils from hundreds of millions of years ago including dinosaur bones! We will make Dinosaur fossils. You can use playdough, but if you want a more permanent fossil you can make Salt Dough. The recipe is: 1 and 1/3 cup Regular Flour 1/3 cup table salt 1/2 cup water 1. Mix flour and salt in large mixing bowl. 2. Slowly add water until dough is soft but not sticky. (You may need less than 1/2 cup of water) 3. Knead the dough for 5-10 minutes 4. Store for up to two days in a sealed container or plastic bag. You will also need a couple of pieces of parchment paper or aluminum foil to work on. See the printout for directions on how to bake the dough once the fossils have been made. If using commercial Oven-Dry Clay, please follow the directions on the package to harden the fossil after the class. You can paint your fossils once they are dried. Let me know if you have any questions. See you soon! Annette the Teacher
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is no formal assessment for this class.
50 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
We will be using Salt Dough (see attached recipe). Alternatively, you can use air dry clay or oven dry clay. These clays may contain wheat, an allergen in some people. Salt dough and the oven-dry dough must be baked at 250 degrees. Adult assistance will be needed. 
This class was developed by Annette the Teacher.
