Sample Lessons K-8

The best way to understand the K12 online learning experience is to try it out! The sample lessons below let you do just that.

While it varies by course and grade level, a given course can be made up of as many as 180 lessons. Some lessons are 100% online and interactive, others take place off line, and some are a little of both. In every case, clear direction is provided to the Learning Coach to help them guide their student and ensure that the lesson's learning objectives are met.

Take the sample lessons below for a test drive to get a feel for the real experience. 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!
