Parental Guidance: Many of these projects require fine motor skills. Some of them require adult supervision. And others will require you to teach your child how to be scientific in a responsible way. 

Please note the following will be discussed:
World War 1 - as it pertains to the author’s back story.
How to make a mini crossbow from pens and toothpicks
Environmental conservation - for our biosphere 

Please inform your child about safety rules regarding: 
Permanent markers 

Please note: Students will be required to take turns talking, to raise their (physical or digital) hand before speaking. Students are not required to talk if they don't want to, rather I want everyone to have the chance to be heard (and not interrupted). The use of virtual background or sound effects is not allowed in my class. Please take a moment to discuss online classroom rules with your learner prior to enrolment into my class. Rudeness and bullying are not tolerated.
