Mr. Lewis' Honors Geology

Hello! And welcome to the class website. Here you will find a bunch of useful resources to learn more about the various things we'll cover in class, but hopefully with fewer dad jokes and better air conditioning. I'll post various class notes, handouts and worksheets here. Along with any class announcements, or things I've geeked out about lately.
