Class Experience

Students will learn all about our solar system including our planets, the sun, and the moon. Students will be able to tell the difference between the rocky planets and the gas planets. Students will learn all about the moon and each phase that occurs over a month. Students will learn about space travel and the important factors that astronauts have to learn and master before completing space missions. 
I have taught this Solar System Unit for many years in classrooms and have been intrigued by my students' excitement to learn the true facts about it. Over the years, I have continued to update and change these lessons to make them more student driven, hands on and exciting for students. I have found that after learning a scientific topic, students love engaging in a hands on approach in order to demonstrate their learning. 
There will be various hands on activities that your children can engage in that will extend their classroom learning. 
There will be various hand outs that will need to be printed prior to specific lessons. Students will need pencils, coloring materials, and paper. There may be additional materials needed if students partake in the hands on engineering activities that will be used to extend the learning outside of the classroom for homework. These materials will include glue, tape, construction paper, cardboard etc.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
During classes, I will observe each student's thoughts and ideas during discussions to see if they demonstrate understanding of the facts discovered. I will use student's work created per lesson will also be used for assessment. 
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
