This 12 week class will begin with an introduction to zoology and then dive into a study of mammals. We will learn about where these animals live, their connection to the land where they live, to their community within that habitat. We will draw, model, hear stories about and watch these animals. Through this study we will be both learning about animals and learning about ourselves as humans. Some classes will include time for watching excerpts from nature documentaries and a discussion how it relates to what we have been learning. Students will need to purchase a copy of the book ANIMAL : The Definitive Visual Guide 3rd Edition by Smithsonian Institution DK. This book has been out of stock on Amazon.com but has been available at Barnes and Noble online and can be ordered at the local B&N store.
Topics will include:
What is a mammal?
Dolphins, porpoises, and whales
Egg laying mammals
Horses, rhinoceroses, and tapirs
Winter classes will be held in my home (not in the yurt). Keeping the long path to the yurt ice free and safe is a challenge in this deepest part of winter. When we get to some slightly warmer and less snowy weather in March or April classes will transition back to the yurt.
