*Note: This Flex class is a compilation of six of my one-time classes under the Wildlife Tour series. You can view these in my profile if your learner prefers live classes. In the next six weeks, we will travel to six of the seven continents and explore the vast diversity of wildlife across the globe. Through our study of the ecosystems and their wildlife, we will also gain a deeper understanding of threats to their existence and the conservation required to help these wild places thrive for...
After six weeks, students will be able to describe these six ecosystems, major characteristics of the area, and thoroughly describe several animals in each location. Students will gain a more comprehensive view of global ecology and what it takes to conserve our world.
I got my bachelor's degree in biology (wildlife ecology) and my Master's in science education. I am a high school biology, environmental science, and zoology teacher and have experience working with many animals, including from sloths to poisonous frogs to sea anemones. Animals are my favorite thing to teach!
Each week, there will be a lesson and a short quiz for students to complete to test their knowledge. Additional tasks and supplemental materials will be shared in the classroom for students to read, watch, and complete, as desired. Students will be encouraged to join in weekly discussion with classmates (pending section enrollment).
There are no other supplies needed, but students may choose to use Google suite (documents, slides, etc) for notes or activities. Students may also choose to use art supplies for some projects but are not required to use any of these materials. Students may want to print out class materials, but again, not required.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
While feedback is provided throughout the class, please contact me (preferably before the course begins) if you would like any formal assessments or grades.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Any discussions of climate change are based on the widely accepted knowledge of the secular scientific community.
