Recommended K-8 Scope and Sequence

Research shows that an instructional model that delivers fewer science concepts in greater depth produces much better learning than one in which many topics are briefly visited. FOSS Next Generation is designed to help your students, over years, develop more sophisticated ways to think about the core ideas of science. Modules are truly connected and build upon one another within and across each strand, progressively moving students toward the big ideas of science.
