  • Letter to Parents

    Each FOSS module includes a letter to parents to tell you what your child will be doing in the investigations at school and to share ways that you can develop your child's scientific interests at home.

  • Home/School Connections

    There are many ways to extend your child's science experiences at home and to have fun together. We have developed a Home/School Connection for each of the four investigations in the Solids and Liquids module. These require little or no materials from home. Young children will need a parent, grandparent, or a big brother or sister to help read the directions and play along. Check them out!

    Investigation 1: Solids—Play I Spy a Solid!

    Investigation 2: Liquids—Describe a household liquid!

    Investigation 3: Bits and Pieces—Drop liquids and small solids on different surfaces!

    Investigation 4: Solids and Liquids with Water—Make scientific salad dressing!
