How can you support your children's interest in Science?

 

Read about science.  Visit your local library, ask for books related to the topics being covered in the classroom.  Visit http://www.fossweb.com/searches/search.php and see a full listing of selected readings for every grade level.

The Boston Public Schools is using the FOSS Curriculum in our elementary schools. Children will be covering a variety of topics in science each year.
 
"FOSS is a research-based science curriculum for grades K–8 developed at the Lawrence Hall of Science, University of California at Berkeley. The FOSS project began over 20 years ago during a time of growing concern that our nation was not providing young students with an adequate science education. The FOSS program materials are designed to meet the challenge of providing meaningful science education for all students in diverse American classrooms and to prepare them for life in the 21st century. Development of the FOSS program was, and continues to be, guided by advances in the understanding of how youngsters think and learn."
