Virtual Zoology Class for Homeschool Kids

By Devany | Labels:
One of my favorite virtual homeschool classes to teach is Zoology! I've always loved to learn about animals and so have my own kids. This weekly science course covers so much fascinating content!

I created this Zoology class for homeschooled kids in 2020 when my oldest was in 5th grade. She had some peers who were being homeschooled suddenly and unexpectedly and this class was to support lots of parents during a difficult time with my expertise - teaching! (I also co-founded Cardigan Academy that year as well!)

I'll be offering the weekly classes again for the 2022 - 2023 school year. My youngest will be in 4th grade. The content is appropriate for students ages 8 and up. 

There are three tiers of participation. You can register your child for the entire school year for the greatest discount. All 35 weeks will be only $280 which works out to $8 a class. (I try to price my classes comparable to Outschool.) The deadline is Sept. 4.

Another option is by season  which works out to $9 per class.

Fall - $108 for 12 weeks (Sept. through Nov.) 
The deadline for fall is Sept. 4.

Winter - $99 for 11 weeks (Dec. through Feb.) 
The deadline for winter is Dec. 1.

Spring - $108 for 12 weeks (March through May) 
The deadline for spring is Feb. 27.

Finally, you can register per class for $10 each.

This is perfect for grades 3 and up but I am open to accepting younger students if you reach out to me. In the past I have taught this to grades 4 through 7 but it can be easily adapted for all learners
