Life Science

Welcome to my home page. This website will focus on Life Science class at THMS. Life science is the study of living things and how they interact. It covers such topics as the characteristics, classification, and behaviors of organisms, and the interactions they have with each other and with the natural environment.

What are we up to?

Both STEM Life Science and Life Science are currently learning about Characteristics of Living Things and Cells.
Online Text

I found this cool website that is basically an online text book (of course, it's not our text book, but it still has great information in it!)  Here is a link to the book.

Feed my fish!   =)
