Description

Class Experience

Learners will practice taking turns, critical thinking, and extrapolation.
I have been homesteading for more than two decades: living on a timber farm, raising a garden, wildcrafting from forage, and raising various animals, including: horses, dairy goats, waterfowl, turkeys, chickens, rabbits, dogs, and cats. I also served as a veterinary assistant for seven years in a small animal clinic. We have lots of animal tracks around our wooded homestead property.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This holiday-themed class will be mainly about the identification of animals using tracks left in the snow. The premise is trying to track down Santa on his annual present delivery route. We will be discussing which type of clues to look for: sleigh tracks, reindeer, boot marks, etc. Since the teacher is in North America, the Santa culture will be one common to the USA: a fat, jolly older North-Pole dwelling gent dressed in red with white trim who rides around in a sleigh pulled by flying reindeer to deliver gifts on Christmas Eve. Belief in Santa is helpful for learners in this class. Any questions about presents or specific Santa-related things will be met with a suggestion to write a letter to Mr. Claus himself to answer. :)
