Zoology of Minecraft: Sponges, Corals, and...Sea Pickles? (Ages 12+)

Animalia Mania Zoology with Deniz M. (M.S., M.A.)
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(822)
Let's meet the corals, sponges, and "sea pickles" of Minecraft, and learn about how the real-life watery wonders fit into the animal kingdom!

Class Experience

Basic zoology of the Sponges (Porifera), Corals (Anthozoa), and Pyrosomes (Pyrosoma); intro to animal classification; basal animals; animal symmetry; the relationship of non-vertebrate chordates to both vertebrates and invertebrates
I am a naturalist with a focus on zoology, and enjoy sharing my love of the animal kingdom with lifelong learners of all ages through various education and outreach activities both online and off. 

[oh, and I've been playing video games since the first gen when they all used to look this pixelated... 😜]

I also have nearly two decades experience as a home education advocate, including homeschooling my own children from preschool through high school. I am a big proponent of flexible learning, individualized education, and supporting fellow neurodiverse learners, so please don't hesitate to reach out to me with requests for accommodations or additional resources.  We all learn in our own way and time, but everyone should have the chance to learn about how cool animals are! 😎
