Description

Class Experience

Students will be able to name the layers of the Sun, identify which layer we can see from Earth & what happens in the Sun’s Core & Corona. Learners will be able to compare our Sun to other stars, as well as describe the basic life cycle of stars from birth to death for both main-sequence stars and massive stars. Students will also learn a fun song about our Sun & its layers!
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 other telescopes my grandpa built. 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 a Master’s Degree in Teaching & over 30 years of experience working with children of various ages, and more than 5 years teaching students about Space, as well as other Science-related subject-matter, I love sharing my knowledge with the next generation. My hope is 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 to the Cosmos during this Amazing Space Mission!
There is no homework for this course, however, teacher will add additional videos, flyers, color pages, notes, and more in the Outschool classroom for those students who truly want to dive into the Cosmos to learn more.
Any learning materials needed will be available for download in the Outschool classroom.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is no formal assessment for this 8-week course, however, the teacher will utilize a variety of methods to determine that learning has occurred, including, online polls, game-type activities, and in-class review questions, as well as other fun, interactive methods. Students are encouraged to explore these in the Outschool Classroom.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
