In this ongoing astronomy class I will be the tour guide to take learners on an adventure across the universe to explore amazing phenomenon such as black holes, stellar nurseries, nebulae, the Big Bang, exoplanets, and much more.

Class experience

US Grade 3 - 6
This class is taught in English.
Learners will understand foundational information about important astronomical concepts and be able to draw and/or explain these concepts.
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 since 2003 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 regularly conduct research and follow the NASA website to make sure I am using the most up-to-date information possible.
I post in the classroom weekly to let learners know what to bring, but it's typically household items like paper, pencil, ruler, colors, and maybe a calculator.
Sometimes the idea of the Big Bang comes up in classes, so that may be discussed.
