Science

FOSS (FULL OPTION SCIENCE SYSTEM) is an inquiry based science program. Younger elementary students engage in science investigations in which they describe, sort, and organize observations about objects and organisms. Upper elementary school students construct more advanced concepts by classifying, testing, experimenting, and determining cause and effect relationships among objects, organisms, and systems. All students participate in activities that are multi-sensory, provide student-to-student interactions and require discourse and reflective thinking.

 

SEPUP (The Science Education for Public Understanding Program) creates innovative science curriculum for use in 6-12 education. Issue-oriented science forms the core of SEPUP's curriculum materials. Every unit uses personal and societal issues to provide thematic continuity for student investigations and observations.
