If you like to camp, beachcomb, hike, or visit an aquarium or zoo you won’t want to miss this fun class! Christine Echeverri, author and publisher of Earth Party! unit study curriculum, will teach a semester-long class exploring the Linnaean system of classifying living things — single-celled life through the animal kingdom. In the course of the class, students will be introduced to bacteria, fungi, plants, animals (vertebrates and invertebrates), and protists (algae, paramecium, etc).


Each session will have 55 minutes of content involving hearing stories (from Earth Party curriculum), watching videos, discussions, and looking at life forms; the last 15-20 minutes will involve games and hands-on activities. This class will have weekly independent web research and a fun, final project component. The final project will be one of the Earth Party! Cross-Chapter Exploration projects, allowing students make one of ten multi-sensory project choices – or – a DIY project of student’s own choosing.

Out-of-Class Workload:

  • Weekly: 20-50 minutes per week reading the Kingfisher Science Encyclopedia (several pages a week) and/or exploring and researching life forms (gathering photos, reporting on what is discovered, etc).
  • Final Project: 1-4 hours, depending on project chosen (projects can be more design-oriented, activity or field trip-oriented, or DIY).
