Microbiology for Kids: The Basics
Part 1 of a 2 Part Series
Science Everyone Should Learn!
Microbiology for Kids: The Basics
Microbiology is the study of bacteria, viruses, and other microbes that are invisible to the eye. These tiny creatures are everywhere, including on and in you!
When one of my students told her mother she needed me to teach more about viruses, I realized she was right! In this class, Blair Lee, M.S. weaves core and foundational biology into a topic everyone should learn! The good news is, microbiology is fascinating, too!
Microbiology for Kids is the only class of its kind!
Each week students will learn about important biological concepts that build on previous classes. After class, they will have original labs and activities written by Blair especially this class to encourage mastery of the concepts for a hands-on approach to learning.
These classes are live via Zoom, interactive, educational, and FUN!
In addition to important topical knowledge, students will:
• Learn the scientific method by using it
• Gain experience writing lab reports and recording their observations
• Work with 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional scientific models
• Have the option of presenting their experimental findings
• Engage with a peer group about this fascinating area of science!
The Feed-Back Add-on for Microbiology for Kids: The Basics comes with feed-back on all coursework, office hours, and evaluations.
All elementary-level in-person classes are taught with a classroom facilitator so that Blair’s focus can be with the students and their learning instead of Zoom management.
Reviews for Blair Lee's Online Classes
We are absolutely loving the format, content and of course teaching in our Thursday Science Series! Thank you for all the hard work you have done. It’s fabulous and hands down the best homeschool class my kids have ever taken. C.D.
My child is really enjoying your class and I love how you are teaching to this age group! I wish there were more classes like this for the elementary age group you are offering! S.N.
I wanted to let you know that when I ask the girls what their favorite class is, both agree, it is your online science series :-). C.W.
My child has genuinely enjoyed your class. My father is a life-long ecologist and so my child has been exposed to a lot of science. It’s tough for me to find something interesting and engaging enough for them – and you’ve delivered in spades! Thank you! Your excitement and engagement with these kids is terrific! B. is genuinely enjoying the classes!!! We can’t wait for more!!! K.P.
- R. loves all science and the way you teach is so engaging for my child. The hands on projects have been a lot of fun. Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm with the children. It is wonderful!
How The Earth Got It’s Shape was wonderful. Thank you. M. cracks me up. I am purposely not around so she can tell me ALL about it after, as that is really how she learns best, by teaching. The way she talks about you, is so endearing. She says, Mom, Blair is seriously in love with science. LOL. 🙂
