FOSS: Leading the way to the Next Generation

The FOSS program for Grades K-7 is approved for
West Virginia schools!

Transform your science program with modules and courses designed to support core ideas, crosscutting concepts, science and engineering practices, and performance expectations for elementary and middle school.

FOSS is an active learning program that seamlessly blends engaging, hands-on science investigations with science writing, language development strategies, reading in informational texts, online technology, outdoor experiences, and research-based formative assessment strategies. This multi-modal combination promotes the construction of increasingly complex understanding of science concepts over time.

See for yourself how FOSS can make the WV Next Generation Science Content Standards and Objectives come alive in your classroom.
