Class Experience

Look! There is something floating in the sea. It’s a boat… No, it’s a log…. Actually it’s a raft. A group of resting, floating sea otters is called a raft. Adorable sea otters love to play and frolic around with their family members. They also love to cuddle. Have you ever wondered why sea otters hold hands?  Or maybe you wondered why some sea otters have a favorite rock?  If so, then this class is for you!

In this exciting class, we will take a virtual trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium to watch the sea otters live in action. The students will share their background knowledge and make predictions about sea otters through their observations. We will learn all about sea otters through a discussion, a presentation, and a few activities. We will look at picture, videos, and play a guessing game during class. The students will learn about how sea otters interact with their family and how they hunt for their food. They will learn how sea otters keep themselves and their babies safe in the ocean. We will end the class by creating a sea otter project together.

What you'll learn

Live Observations and Imagination

After this class, the students will be able to describe sea otters interacting through live observations. They will use their imagination and identify what sea otters eat. The students will be able to locate where sea otters live on a map. They will be able to identify the body parts of sea otters. Students will also learn some basic facts about sea otters. Through the activity at the end of the class, students will be able to use their critical thinking skills, collaboration skills and fine motor skills to create a project that they will present to other peers.

Loved:

The length of the class and the activity which is right up most kids' alley. My student said "I didn't know that you can jump three times higher on Mars than Earth." One can't beat that kind of excitement.

Improvements:

How to let children know not to continually pop up with comments. One child in particular hogged most of the discussion. Don't know how to deal with that. Have kids on mute?

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!

Improvements:

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?
