FOSS Kit Living Systems
Investigations 1-2 support 5th grade GLCE's.*
*Use these resources to supplement and include skeletal, nervous, and muscular systems to help cover all GLCE's.
Be sure to cover the body systems in Investigations 1-2 (including the extra systems listed above) and then proceed through Investigation 3.
