Inside the PDF you'll find:

  • 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 three investigations in the Trees and Weather Module. These require little or no materials from home.

    Investigation 1: Observing Trees—Estimate the number of trees in your area.
    Investigation 2: Observing Leaves—Play "Is This My Leaf" to practice leaf identification.
    Investigation 3: Observing Weather—Make windchimes.
