This site will serve as a key resource for your Biology or Life Science classes. Use it well. You will be expected to access this site often for resources, quizzes, assignments, etc. Get comfortable navigating around and finding the unit you are on and the resources found there. I look forward to helping you learn more about Life and Earth science throughout the year.
Life Science will take young minds on an exploration of the study of life by practicing science, making our own discoveries, and learning from the life scientists that have come before.
