We take a lot of things for granted, including modern inventions like the Internet and antibiotics, and natural phenomena like extreme weather, bacteria—even dirt! In Science You Can’t Live Without, students will learn fun facts about science and realize how our lives would be different without soap, clocks, and plastic…and more! What if there was no clean water…or sleep…or (*gasp*) cell phones? It might get a little gross but it’ll be a lot interesting!
Through books and videos, discussion and experiments with little weekly homework (1-3 pages weekly) this class will introduce young learners to a variety of scientific topics to explore how the world was different without certain scientific discoveries and how our lives would change without those discoveries and other God-given blessings that we often think of as bothers like insects, bees, and even boogers! (I know. Eww, right? But, scientifically, we do need them.)
All supplies will be provided. Homework will be given weekly and highly encouraged to be completed. This gives the student and parent a time/way to discuss what was learned in class and provides a jumping off point for parents to continue the learning at home. As each student has varied abilities I welcome parents, siblings, grandparents, etc. to assist students with any writing. No reading or writing will be required during class so all levels of learners are welcome.
Supply Fee: $75

In the event that the COVID-19 pandemic affects our ability to meet in person in a classroom, I will make the following adjustments to this class. *Tutor will submit youtube videos to view and weekly projects, experiments, or work. *Tutor and students will meet during the last 30 minutes of the scheduled class time for students to share their work with me and other students via video conferencing platform. Our plan is to meet in person as soon as it is feasible. We may begin OR cancel CLASSROOM meetings at any point during the school year as the COVID-19 situation changes. Our goal is to keep your family safe and engaged during this unprecedented time.
