Class Experience

The goal of this class is for students to learn about the geology, wildlife and the history of each of the listed national parks.
I have a BA in elementary education with a minor in history.  I love teaching all subjects but most of all, I love teaching young learners about the world around them.  I have a great love for history, nature and the great outdoors.  I have been blessed throughout my life to have spent a lot of time traveling across the United States.  During this time I have been able to explore many of our country's beautiful National Parks.  My parents were both educators and instilled in me at a young age the love for learning, teaching and appreciating nature.  I love sharing these same principles with others! 
Supplemental material will be provided however, no homework is required for this course.  I will be sharing additional resources for students interested in learning more about each national park..
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No formal assessment will be given for this class however, at the end of each lesson learners will be given a few fun "check for understanding" questions to help them with retaining information about what was taught during the lesson.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Volcanoes will be discussed extensively (pictures, images and a very short video clip) in a few of these classes that may be disturbing to some children.  If you have any questions about this you are welcome to contact me.
