Bachelor of Science in Biology, Secondary Education from Appalachian State University Stanford University Hollyhock Fellow 2016-2018

Mrs. Laura Chalfant

Hello!  Welcome to Biology!

Biology is the study of life, and this semester we will read, conduct labs, and participate in activities designed to help you better understand many of the processes and interactions in which living things are involved.  We will talk about all kinds of life, from microscopic bacteria to whole ecosystems, in our journey through the study of life.  You will also conduct an independent research project that will be presented at a "science fair" at the end of the semester.  

 

All materials for class are located on Google Classroom.  Students will sign up for my Google Classroom the first week of the semester.  Parents may make a parent account to attach to their student's so they can view student progress.  If you need technical assistance with this please contact me by phone or email.
