Check out FOSS Next Generation K-8!

This spring a group of 30 PK-8 teachers and administrators convened to review and select research-based, NGSS-aligned science resources to support our PK-5 educators. After many many hours of reviewing necessary criteria, diving into resources, discussing, and debating, this group unanimously decided to adopt FOSS Next Generation as our new elementary science resources. FOSS provides a well-developed program that has been revamped since the release of the Next Generation Science Standards.

The task force found FOSS to be a very strong resource that provides cross-content connections, great teacher resources and support, and local connections to the content. It also has productive talk already built into the lessons with discussion prompts and guides!

If you are interested in learning more about these materials or want to try them in your classroom let us know!
