Using FOSS in Multiple Classrooms

Some schools have a science resource teacher who teaches science to all of the students on a rotating basis. The specialist may see three or even four third-grade classes on Monday, three or four first-grade classes on Tuesday, and so on. Even though FOSS was not designed for the science resource room model, it can be adapted for back-to-back use of the activities.

The documents listed below are designed to help resource teachers anticipate the additions and modifications they will have to make for multiple uses of FOSS modules designed for grades 1–6 (except Measurement, for which no additional materials are needed). Kindergarten modules, which are conducted for the most part in centers, are also omitted.
