BFSU Links

Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding, by Bernard Nebel
Vol. 1, K-2nd grade

The following is a list of links to videos from Discovery Education that are applicable to various lessons from BFSU. These are just videos that we used when doing these lessons - they may not cover exactly the same material as the BFSU lessons, but they may be helpful for your students too. The lessons are listed in the order we did them. Note that you have to have a paid subscription to Discovery Education to view the videos. And, of course, you will want the book by Dr. Nebel to go along with the videos!
