“Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding”
Over 50 five-star reviews on Amazon speak to BFSU as being the best K-8 science curriculum for kids available. BFSU’s over 100 science lesson plans address and integrate all major areas of science and technology. Lessons follow a logical progression that develops core ideas, crosscutting concepts, in systematic steps over time. All lessons engage students in practices of observing, questioning, logical reasoning, and reaching conclusions based on evidence—basic for development of thinking and reasoning skills, i.e., habits of mind.
Children find BFSU both fun and engaging science as it empowers them to figure things out for themselves. Parents/teachers report that they have equal enjoyment as they learn and gain understanding along with their kids. Beyond embarking kids on a first-class science education, BFSU may serve as a model science curriculum for NGSS (K-5). It may contribute to STEM education, and with its suggested reading and writing it easily aligns with Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
All in all, BFSU can be a basic resource for science teachers, whether they are traditional classroom teachers, homeschoolers, or parents supplementing their kids’ science education. (See more under “BFSU Series” and “How To Save”)
