Description

Class Experience

This Space Adventure is crammed-packed with information and fun! Students will learn about the Solar System, its different parts, and the Terrestrial Planets, along with their moons! We will discuss the Earth & Moon, along with how they are unique from other planets and moons. 
I have always had a love of space, from the moment my grandpa, an amateur astronomer, let me look through the 10-foot telescope he built all by himself, to watching shuttles & satellites lift into the sky, and watching some fall back to the earth. I have spotted some of the largest dust storms to hit Mars, and have enjoyed looking at the various craters on our Moon and seeing the rings around Saturn, all from my own backyard in Missouri & while using telescopes, including the ones my grandpa & I built together! I have never ceased my exploration and search, looking to the skies to watch for eclipses, comets, and so much more! My love of all things Space has only increased with time, and I feel it is the next great wave of the future! 
As a teacher with three different degrees, including a Master’s Degree in Teaching, I have taken several science courses, including those dealing with Astronomy. I also have over 30 years of experience working with children of various ages, teaching a variety of topics, including Astronomy, Arts & Crafts, Music, Business, Computers and more! I love to share my knowledge with the next generation as I hope to instill the awe-inspiring beauty the Unknown Universe holds, as well as encourage students to dream and believe! I hope to see you in class as we take on this Amazing Space Mission!
There is no homework for this class.
There will be materials posted in the Outschool Classroom, such as the notes, videos, color pages, games and other informational & learning materials to enhance the presented classroom material. This is optional to complete, however, many students find it interesting and want to do these. They are not required but are offered as a means of driving the learner to an enhanced exploration of space. 
Any learning materials needed will be available for download in the Outschool classroom.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There is no summative assessment for this class, however, learners will be challenged to recall facts and information throughout our discussions and with the review games.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Each learner will need their cameras turned on for this class. Parents may need to assist their child in learning how to "mute & unmute" themselves, as teacher will mute students at times during the "teaching" portion of our class & then ask them to "unmute" to answer questions & interact with the other learners during the interactive, conversational, and review portion of our class. This allows each learner the opportunity to hear what is taught, while still allowing for questions, interaction and such.
Any YouTube videos, or portions of videos, shown during class will be linked in the Outschool Classroom so learners & their families may watch them after class, as desired.
The following sites were utilized in the research and prep for this class:
