Students will learn the basic characteristics of insects and how to determine for themselves if what they see is an insect or not.
There will not be homework but there will be a print out coloring activity for students to complete and color if they choose. We will talk about the coloring sheet during class and students can color and complete it during or after class.
1 file available upon enrollmentI will attach a file to print out for the students to color and complete during or after class. Students will need crayons or colored pencils to complete the print out. Additionally, if any students have toy insects, such as plastic or stuffed insects, please feel free to bring those to use as examples and to share.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
