FOSS Science Resources is a book of original readings, called articles, developed to accompany each module. 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 in FOSS Science Resources and the discussion questions provided in the Investigations Guide help 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.
