Each week this astronomy class takes learners on a tour of a different part of our solar system, including all the planets, dwarf planets, moons, asteroid belt, and Oort cloud.

Class experience

US Grade 2 - 5
Students will know unique features of each of the objects of our solar system and be able to explain these destinations to others.
I specialize in finding fun twists to standard curriculum to help my students build critical thinking skills as well as scientific knowledge.  By adding a new twist to a familiar topic we can expand our thinking to include new possibilities. I have taught science to homeschool students for the last 17 years and during that time I have developed many teaching techniques and hands-on projects to help students explore concepts in new and exciting ways. I have also taught several classes specifically about astronomy in which I allowed students to lead the choice of topics, helping me to know what learners want to know about space.
I post new printouts each week, but if learners would rather write and draw on plain paper that is fine as well. Learners will also want a pencil and colors for each lesson.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I may talk about the formation of the solar system and the universe, and when I do this I discuss the Big Bang theory of the universe forming.
