Cryptozoology (Taig/Quinn) (hannah)

Cryptozoology is the study of animals that hypothetically exist but have not been proven to be real at least to the white straight cis men who run the zoological field. This class will be talking about creatures that seem fantastical but could be real. Oftentimes these animals have not been taken seriously because indigenous people have reported them and not white people. A great example is an animal with two heads one on its chest that is half rabbit half deer with a long thick tail that stands like a human, a kangaroo.

There will be two main projects of this class both of which you will be taking a scientific approach upon even though you’ll be studying something fantastical. These projects will include creating your own realistic cryptid and how it would elude the greater zoological communities, the other project will be a research essay on a cryptid of your choosing. This will be all the homework for this class besides optional activities.

This will be a laid back class for a science credit which you will get easily if you try and be respectful. There will be games throughout making sure this is an active (non physical) course.
