You can request another time or scroll down to find more classes like this.
Learners will learn about the story or life cycle of everyday goods through a Google Presentation. After the presentation, we will use Google Earth to visit some of the countries discussed. Learners are welcome to contribute their own knowledge of the subject during class. This is a lecture type of class and was inspired by Annie Leonard's 2007 animated film called "The Story of Stuff". Week 1: Cell Phones Week 2: Jeans Week 3: Water Bottles Week 4: Diapers
I have taught a Unit similar to this to my Grade 7 and Grade 8 Gifted History/Geography classes. The goal of this unit was to have an enduring understanding by the students that we want to be responsible consumers of goods because these goods are created using the planet's resources and people's efforts.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.

Aside from teaching, I am a mom to four children so I know children/students! I have taught students from pre-school, elementary junior and intermediate, middle school and high school. I look forward to meeting your child in the Outschool...
