This ongoing weekly class is an open-ended deep dive into the weird and wonderful forms of life on Earth. Each week will consist of a theme that ties together a sampling of different biological specimens. As much as possible, these themes will be curated based on current events/seasons, so that students can relate what they're learning to what is happening in the world around them. Classes are intended for 8-13 year old students but I welcome anyone older or younger! We can always raise the...
Students will learn about unique animals around the world, covering many aspects of biology and ecology. Students will learn about animal biology and behavior through the lens of weekly themes, such as "Tundra Adaptations", "Home and Shelter", and "Ancient Extinctions". Students will learn how to make connections among animals that appear very different, employing critical thinking and pattern-finding. Students will learn about scientific research and journalism through the lens of weekly themes.
As a graduate from Duke University with a B.S. in Environmental Science, I'm very well versed in the rigor and protocols of scientific study of biology, ecology, and the many subjects adjacent. Moreover, my experience as a farmer has exposed me to the myriad weird creatures found on agricultural ecosystems, and cultivated a passion for investigating the oddities in our very own backyards.
No homework is assigned, although occasional activities for further enrichment may be offered at the end of class. For example, our class on Animal Homes will end with a link to a Youtube video of a simple but intensive origami birdhouse.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We'll be covering biology in all its aspects. Some weeks may focus on reproductive life cycles, some weeks may focus on how animals deal with poop. The curious learner will not shy away from our human taboos manifest in the animal kingdom, but if you have any reservations about such subjects, let me know and I can plan accordingly.
