Welcome to the BFSU Community

This site is for parents, teachers, and others using “Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding” (BFSU) in guiding K-8 children and older beginning science learners toward developing a sound foundation of scientific knowledge, skills, and understanding. By clicking on the menu below, you can go to any BFSU lesson or section and find links to photos, videos, and/or other materials that will enhance the lesson. You may also post questions and engage in discussion with other users. Everyone is invited to participate. Your pointing out any errors found in the texts, adding additional links to helpful materials, and/or discussion regarding implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) will be most welcome. To ask general questions or make general comments regarding the BFSU curriculum, please go to and use the Blog spot that you will find there.

The author of BFSU will be the primary moderator of this site. Rudimentary now, the site will grow in its utility with your participation. Please do so. Posts may include a personal byline, but no solicitations or promotions will be allowed. (Report abuse)
