Free web-based science lessons demonstrate how the amazing K12 curriculum enables mastery and makes learning come alive!

HERNDON, Va., Dec. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- K12 Inc. (NYSE Arca: LRN) -- During this season, K12(R) is pleased to present free science lessons as a gift of education to all.

The lessons, entitled "Plate Tectonics -- Forces at Work," for grades 4, 6, and 9, can be accessed by parents, teachers and students at K12's website: http://www.k12.com/gift. A K12 account is not needed and the lessons will be available indefinitely.

These exciting science lessons will help children understand how the mighty forces of plate tectonics impact and shape our world in enormous ways. They are a great resource for parents and kids and an excellent supplement for teachers to use during earth science instruction.

Each year K12 will make available free lessons as a gift of understanding of the big ideas shaping our world.
