Connection to Place (hannah)

Through place-based learning, this class aims to immerse students in the heritage, culture, landscape, experiences, and opportunities of your immediate environment. 

This class will be divided into two units: your home and your neighborhood. We will begin by learning about the tribal lands which our homes now occupy. Later in the term, you will make a community asset map of your neighborhood to learn about the social organizations, structures, and services shaping the sociocultural landscape today. 

A lot of this class will be outdoors. Your yard and your neighborhood will be your classroom. Lessons will be interdisciplinary, including sociology, science, civics, language arts, and self care, with the objective to deeply learn about your immediate surrounding environment.

Waves! Electricity & Magnets! Motion & Force! Matter! Energy!

What do all these weird sciency things have in common? They are non-living systems we will study in this class. 

Here are ways you already do science: throwing a frisbee! Listening to music! Heating up soup in the microwave! In this class, we will hypothesize about and experiment with the ways in which these forces shape life and stuff in the universe. 

Here’s an example of something YOU could learn about in this class: momentum
