My degree is in Biology. I have taught 4H Vet Science and Vet Pet Summer Camps at a local private school. My joy is educating children interested in this field of veterinary science.

Details: Upon class completion, students will show optional homework they have done by uploading it to the instructor. They will receive a Certificate of Complete for their portfolios.
Children at a young age may need some guidance with the layout of the material presented. 
Arts and craft materials: paper, pencil, coloring tools, scissors, glue sticks, or tape.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I may refer to a 2-3 minute video in each lesson. 
I will show a preserved rat and cat skull. 
These may be sensitive issues for young children afraid of skeletons. 
We will study microscopic insects and preserved worms that make animals sick. 
Some children are afraid of bugs or worms. 
Also, scissors may be used for a project and supervision may be needed to keep the child safe.
