Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn how to conduct valid experiments with controlled variables and accurate measurement. They will learn how to analyze their results and make scientific conclusions.
During my 26 years as a public school teacher, I taught inquiry science to all ages groups. When I left the classroom, I served as a science and math teacher development specialist, wrote and delivered science professional development to teachers across the district, and wrote district science curriculum and assessments for elementary grades.
May require investigation graph to be completed independently, depending on the time required for the investigation.
A full material will be posted on the class page prior to the first week of class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will interact in class through the Pear Deck platform as the main presentation tool. Check for Understanding games will be played on Kahoot and Quizlet.  Some pre-screened You Tube videos will be included for content as well as unlisted YouTube videos created by the teacher. None of these resources require students to create log ins or accounts and  they will be presented live through the PearDeck platform.
