You DO NOT have to purchase them: Usborne Art Ideas—Drawing Cartoons, Stan Lee’s How to Draw Comics, and Mastering Manga with Mark Crilley. **Just FYI, Stan Lee’s book does have some mild adult content-violence and scantily clad women. It is not the main focus of the book, and it can be avoided when reading the valid illustration content. Obviously I will be filtering this for class. Each book has a strength. The Usborne book shows a wide variety of characters. Stan Lee’s book focuses on superheroes and good story telling. And Mastering Manga is helpful for the Manga specialty.

* OERB Petro Active STEAM


Teacher: Amy Shipman This STEAM elective curriculum was created by the Oklahoma Energy Resource Board (OERB) and is wonderful enrichment for those who are interested in diving deeper into science and math topics with life application. We will complete a hands-on lesson/experiment every meeting day. Students will come home with optional extensions to complete during the week such as virtual field trips and at-home experiments that can be fun for the whole family. Many of these have the option to post your results on the OERB social media pages for the chance to win prizes. This curriculum covers science topics such as geologic timescales and processes, wavelength, amplitude, frequency, distillation, seismology and conservation. We will also be covering math topics such as mapping, tangrams, slope, algebraic reasoning, ratios and proportional relationships. Students will practice these concepts and learn more about how land descriptions are used in the energy industry, how the concept of slope is used in directional drilling and will complete the curriculum by designing their own storage tanks by calculating volume and surface area. (Includes math levels 5th grade -pre algebra) But do not be overwhelmed by the sound of all those complicated words. This curriculum simplifies things in a way that make these concepts easy to learn and apply, even making it FUN! This is a great option if your student struggles with the typical “lecture : solve the problem” methods as we will be doing experiments and applying each of these topics to real-life circumstance during our weekly hands-on lessons. We will also have a petroleum professional visit our classroom during the year. In addition, there will be at least one field trip during the year that is offered outside of Academy hours, but entrance to the chosen field trip location will be free for the student enrolled in this elective class. Join us for some STEAM FUN! Supplies Needed: Pencil Supply Fee: $0
