What educators are saying

We have loved this science curriculum. It has been fun for the students, helped them to learn new concepts and allowed them to work with the scientific process.
I love these units. They are so fun and engaging and everything I need to teach science. I like how it includes interactive notebook pieces, vocab and experiments.

  1. Are you struggling to find materials for your second grade NGSS lessons? These units include so many activities and resources that you can use! There are mini books, vocabulary, posters, hands on activities, passages, and so much more! This is a bundle of my three 2nd Grade NGSS units. Here's a brea

This second grade unit on structure and properties of matter aligns to NGSS* standards 2-PS1-1, 2-PS1-2, 2-PS1-3, and 2-PS1-4. Students will learn about the different states of matter and how to classify the types of matter. They'll learn different properties of materials, how to build objects from sets of pieces, and how heating and cooling changes affect matter.

It covers four topics:

  • Classifying Types of Matter
  • Properties of Materials
  • Objects Built From Sets of Pieces
  • hands-onHeating and Cooling Changes

Included are mini books, hands on science activities, non-fiction passages, practice pages, interactive notebook pages, and much more! Download the 26 page preview to see what's included in this 130 page resource!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot. Examples of reversible changes could include materials such as water and butter at different temperatures. Examples of irreversible changes could include cooking an egg, freezing a plant leaf, and heating paper.
Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties. Observations could include color, texture, hardness, and flexibility. Patterns could include the similar properties that different materials share.
Analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose. Examples of properties could include, strength, flexibility, hardness, texture, and absorbency. Assessment of quantitative measurements is limited to length.
Make observations to construct an evidence-based account of how an object made of a small set of pieces can be disassembled and made into a new object. Examples of pieces could include blocks, building bricks, or other assorted small objects.
