Oxford Virtual Academy
Dinosaur Hill is excited to be offering a completely digital experience with Oxford Virtual Academy for the Winter/Spring 2021 Semester!
Exploring the natural sciences, we will take a virtual look at several different aspects of earth-science topics from the comfort of our own homes by exploring a wide range of scientific specialties by observing experiments and field work of their respective fields to learn how to live a day in the life of a scientist! Each week we will take a close look at a specific field of study as our in-house scientist takes the children on wacky and quirky adventures through experiments, field work, and the scientific method. These classes will be prerecorded with inspiration drawn from Bill Nye, Coyote Peterson and other entertaining and educational presenters. Every week will have an at-home experiment to replicate, a short exploration assignment with plenty of supplemental resources and tools to keep children engaged and excited for additional content!
These special web episodes and content are geared specifically towards early elementary students (K-4th grade) and are developed with their developmental milestones in mind. Lectured lessons are short and silly and at-home experiments hands on and engaging with an emphasis on asking questions, exploring ideas and playing scientist.
Our semester is completely free for homeschool students enrolled with the Oxford Virtual Academy with no additional fees.
The fourteen week semester will be completely digital for Winter/Spring 2021 with classes going live every Wednesday beginning on February 3rd, 2021!
Registration is easy! Simply email Joel@DinosaurHill.org with your child's full name (first, middle initial and last) and their OVA grade level and you're set!
