Come learn about the first people… Hunter-Gatherers! In this one-time class, we will learn all about pre-historic civilizations. We will discuss varieties of customs and nomadic qualities (food, homes, etc.).
Students will be presented material by PowerPoint. Mrs. Rebecca will teach key qualities of these societies. She will facilitate a discussion, helping students step into the “bare feet” of prehistoric humans. Students will be encouraged to interact in conversation/feedback with each other throughout the lesson.
At the end of class, we will experience a taste of pre-historic life together through a “choose-your-own-path” story. Our decisions will lead us through set-backs and victories. Hopefully, we think like true hunter-gatherers by not choosing the path that will lead to life’s end. How will it turn out? We will find out!
This class is recommended for kids in grades 4-8

Rebecca FosterMrs. Rebecca loves the quote, “Teaching isn’t my job. It’s my passion.” She has had this passion from the beginning. Her teddy bears learned a lot, with her bedroom-sized chalkboard and old textbooks from her mom’s elementary classroom. It was no surprise to anyone when she sought and gained her Interdisciplinary Studies (K-8) degree from Middle Tennessee State University in 2001. That fall, she began her teaching career in a self-contained 6th grade classroom. Since then, she has taught all core subject areas in grades 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 in Rutherford County Schools. As a dedicated public school teacher, she spent countless hours planning lessons, creating materials, researching for best practices, collaborating with co-workers, and combing through student data. Her students consistently showed academic growth on state testing. She has spent the last 2 years teaching students from China online and in-person at a homeschool tutorial. She is excited to join the team of outstanding educators at Fusion Online Academy.
