Class Experience

Students will learn about the different types of kingdoms and key characteristics that make them unique to their kingdom. Students will learn about information regarding each kingdom and special structures or adaptations they have to make them unique. 
I am a 5th grade teacher, and have taught middle school science for 8 years from 6-8th grade. I am licensed as a science teacher from 6-12 grade, including Biology, with a Masters in Science Education. I like making learning relate to real world experiences so students can connect to material easier than standard memorization. I review in a flow pattern that starts with basic information and expands into complex information to assist students with retention. 
Students will be provided weekly activities for enrichment. While not mandatory for completion, they will complement each weeks' instructional video and help students be successful in the weekly quiz and break out room.
Students will be provided hand-outs for notes to keep for their possession each week, along with printable resources for activities. Students will also need a pencil to complete activities.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will complete a break out room each week, requiring information from the week's instructional video. Completion of the break out room will demonstrate mastery of each week's content. In addition, students will have weekly access to Quizizz quiz to demonstrate mastery. Scores will be sent weekly to students and parents for academic records. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
In this class, the six animal kingdoms will be discussed including how they may reproduce. While nothing specific will be discussed regarding  animal anatomy or mating rituals, it is important parents and guardians are aware that discussion will come up regarding male vs. female and words such a "Sexual" and "a-sexual" may arise due to the reproduction of organisms based on their kingdoms, including plants due to their ability to both produce pollen and accept pollen for fertilization. In regards to animals, it will be briefly discussed how animals are unique as they require a mate to reproduce, and then live vs. egg young will be discussed. Discussion will be very brief regarding this concept. 
Students will be given weekly links to quizizz quizzes, break out rooms, and other resources created by the teacher (all worksheets for this class are created by the teacher directly).
