Life Skills Science

In this class we will be completing multiple experiments, exploring, and learning how science affects our lives. We will be learning about physical science (basic chemical reactions, matter, and atoms), biology (animals, body functions (how are body works)), and environmental science (photosynthesis, and ecosystems).

One of my plans for the spring is to get an incubator, so we can hatch chicks, and then go to Murdoch's to learn more about them. Don't worry no one will be bringing home any chicks, ducklings, or goslings.

All of the content will be taught at the students' individual levels.

Life Skills History/Government

In this class we will be primarily using a program called News-2-You. It is a newspaper that I can match to each student's ability level in regards to reading. The content is usually about current events or different celebrations that are going on around the United States. The news will be appropriate and unpolitical. We will discuss the basics of government and touch base in different parts of history.

All content will be matched to the student's ability level.

This class will be really fun and is for our juniors and seniors. The students in this class will run our Coffee Cart business. For coffee cart we sell coffee, tea, apple cider, and hot chocolate to our teachers. The students are in charge of the money, being the barista and giving the orders to the other students, and making the drinks. It helps them with communication, responsibility, and job skills. Students will also go out into the communty to go shopping for sporting events, for coffee cart supplies, and will work at walmart and a few other places. We will also be working on resumes, what to do in a job interview, basic first aid, and anything else the students think of.
