Class Experience

Students will gain an understanding of animal adaptations and biomimicry.
I have been a public school science teacher for 10 years.  I worked at the Nature Museum in Chicago for 2 years with a focus on Midwestern plants and animals. 
Students will need paper and pencil.  Coloring supplies are also recommended.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
