Class Experience

Do you know who is the largest member of the dolphin family? Let me give you a clue. They are black and white and their name can sound a little scary to some people. If you guessed the killer whale, you are correct! The large orca is also known by the name killer whale. They are very fascinating animals. In this class, the students will learn all about orcas and why they are known as killer whales. We will discuss the characteristics, behavioral habits, diet, habitat, and threats of killer whales.  We will have fun learning about killer whales through observations, comparisons, pictures, movement, and videos. The students will be encouraged to actively participate in many different ways throughout the class. We will play interactive games and we will also complete a fun orca project together at the end of class.

Ms. Amber is the greatest teacher possible! She is exciting, engaging, and seems to show a general love for teaching children! The material is excellent, and our child is not the only one who has learned a few things during the classes! These classes are one of the best opportunities out there!


Add more class options taught by Ms. Amber, especially in the evening/following school hours, as well as adding more openings for free classes/maybe give past students a head-start for access to the free classes?
