Kindergarten

FOSS modules used in kindergarten:



The

Trees and Weather Module

provides systematic investigations of trees and leaves over the seasons to bring students to a better understanding of trees’ place at school and in the community. Students observe day-to-day changes in weather over the year, as well as the impact weather has on living things.

The

Materials and Motion Module

provides experiences that heighten students’ awareness, curiosity, and understanding of the physical world as they observe and compare the properties of various wood, paper, and fabric by performing a number of tests and interactions. Students explore the concept of force and motion by observing and comparing a variety of pushes and pulls, the speed and motion of moving objects, and collisions.

The

Animals Two by Two Module

provides young students with close and personal interaction with some common land and water animals. Students observe differences in structure and behavior and learn about basic needs of animals.
