My second video talking about my new merle litter that I will be using to create my first set of MisterMiceGuy videos!
I’ve been wanting to make videos for a while but as it turns out making videos is really hard lol. But I am going to get started on my MisterMiceGuy channel were I will be talking about mouse breeding, animal behavior, genetics and more! Clearly I have a lot of work to do haha 🙂
I have a tendency to be shy and nervous. I have a tendency to stick to what I know. I like to take it safe. However today I had an interesting experience when I walked into McDonald’s. Let’s talk about it.Continue reading NEw Experiences at McDonalds

One thing I experience periodically is seemingly unfounded feelings of shame and/or embarrassment. Now I’m not sure if these are even the right words to use. I’m pretty sure it comes from my growing up in a Fundamentalist religion. I want to explore this a bit here today.Continue reading Shame and Embarrassment
For this project I had to develop and teach a lesson plan suitable for a 1st grade Life science class. I chose parental behaviors as my topic.
Subject Area: Life Sciences
Estimated Time: 10 minutes
Lesson Type Title/Topic: Animals and their offspring
Brief overview of Lesson- including vocabulary and possible learner preconceptions and misconceptions:
Students will learn examples of 4 different types of animals and their offspring. Students will gain basic knowledge about how the parents care for their offspring.
Prior Knowledge Required (What should content / skills should be familiar?)
Ability to identify different types of animals (Lions, Guppies, Parakeets, and pythons), be able to read
Resources/Technology used to plan/prep:
Animal pictures, white board, marker
Materials/technology students will use:
MA frameworks – Standards that inform your Objectives: List by content topic, grade level and number, then type out the standard as it appears in the frameworks
1-LS1-2. Obtain information to compare ways in which the behavior of different animal parents and their offspring help the offspring to survive.
- Examples of behaviors could include the signals that offspring make (such as crying, cheeping, and other vocalizations) and the responses of the parents (such as feeding, comforting, and protecting the offspring).
Students will be able to identify different types of animals, their offspring and the type of care the offspring receives.
Students will be able to identify 4 different types of animals and their offspring. Examples to include lions, guppies, and parakeets. Students will gain basic knowledge about how parents of different types of animal’s care for their offspring.
Identification, teamwork, reasoning
Students will learn words: Fry, cub, hatchling, nestling, Male, female, Tropical, Feline, Non-Venomous, offspring. Pride, regurgitate, algae.
Evidence of student learning /assessment
Students will be able to identify animals, match them with their offspring, and identify and match the type of care different types of animals give to their offspring.
Next class will cover hereditary traits and variability among offspring.
