FOSS Science Resources is a book of original readings developed to accompany each middle school course. The readings are referred to as articles in the Investigations Guide. Students read the articles in the book as they progress through the module. The articles cover a specific concept usually after that concept has been introduced in an active investigation.
The articles inFOSS Science Resourcesand the discussion questions provided in the Investigations Guidehelp students make connections to the science concepts introduced and explored during the active investigations. Concept development is most effective when students are allowed to experience organisms, objects, and phenomena firsthand before engaging the concepts in text. The text and illustrations help make connections between what students experience concretely and the ideas that explain their observations.
Each FOSS Complete Kit includes 32 Science Resource Books.
