Class Experience

Students will learn the importance of our bones and be able to identify our 10 largest bones. Additionally, students will gain and understanding of the basic components of our our skeletal system and why our bones are so important in allowing us to move and have fun! By the end of the class, students will be able to identify and label our 10 largest bones as well as demonstrate in a hands on fashion the importance of our bodies bones! 
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology, honors specialization in fitness and exercise prescription. Additionally, I have had significant experience studying as well as teaching anatomy and exercise science to children of all ages as a traditional and non-traditional educator.
In order to make your own skeleton and practicing learning about bones in a hands on way students will require straws (2 or 3) and clay or something similar. However, if your student doesn't not have the required materials they are still welcome to join the class and follow along with my demonstrations! 

Please note depending on the length of your straws they will likely need to be cut in half or in thirds. Please ensure to cut the straws for your learner prior to class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please ensure that you either cut the straws in half or in thirds in advance of class or are able to directly supervisor your child throughout the class while they build their playdough person with bones if they will be using scissors.
