INTRODUCTION

Welcome to Science 1!

 

 

In this course you will study science using tools available to you online.  This course will cover the California Content Standards for Earth Science and is a required course to graduate from high school in Clovis Unified School District (unless you take Chemistry or Physics-you are required to have one physical science class to graduate).  Lessons are structured in such a way as to make it possible for you to access your Science 1 class from anywhere you have web access.  You will be interacting with your teacher as well as your fellow Science 1 classmates.  You will do assignments, activities, labs and assessments all online with only a few exceptions throughout this school year.  So let’s get started!
