K-8 Sample Lessons & Online Curriculum

Experience what it is like to take a lesson online. Our lessons will give you a taste of how the online school works, what kinds of planning and progress tools are available, and the types of activities—online and offline—are included in the lessons.

Explore the sample lessons from kindergarten through eighth grade below to get a feel for what an online lesson is like. Keep in mind that some features have been disabled to make the samples work outside of the online school itself, or to allow us to maintain academic integrity.

Be sure to also check out our sample lessons for grades 9–12. And try our interactive activities and mobile applications for all grades.

You can also experience an entire day in the life of a real K12 student.
