Wolves Course Details
In January 12, 1995, 31 gray wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park. This began a fascinating chapter for this National Park as it came to realize that the natural ecosystem in those areas of the park with wolves in it were actually healthier than the areas without wolves! Using the wolves of Yellowstone as a reference point, learners will spend 3 weeks learning about the evolution, behavior, and ecology of wolves.
Each 3-week session will be filled with hands-on activities and investigations. There will also be some activities for students to do outside of class.
Wolves is one of the 4 sessions in the Elementary Level Science Series Season 4. Each session of the Elementary Level Science Series meets 3 times over a span of 3 weeks. Each 3-week Session includes important, foundational science topics, scientific modeling, focused definitions of core science terms and phrases all in an engaging, high-interest format that meet important Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Each Session of the Elementary Level Science Series has hands-on labs that have been thoughtfully paired with written materials. Materials will be emailed 2-weeks before the class meets with guided readings, materials list, lab instructions as well as suggestions for extra activities and how to use the topics and material for project-based unit studies. During the live sessions, students can ask questions as we go over the material. Then we will work on an lab/activity as a class. Classes will be taped for anyone unable to attend a class.
Course materials will be staggered depending on the grade level, science acumen of the student.
* Lab materials will be inexpensive and easy to obtain.
These are hands-on get up and move around, science classes that are fun & educational.
