This unit is a comprehensive STEM curriculum that not only covers all of the NGSS physical science and engineering for 2nd grade but also has built in technology integration options, math application opportunities, and an integrated literacy component in EVERY lesson. Throughout this unit students will be actively engaged in fun, interactive, hands-on, inquiry based learning through student-led activities.
These lessons were created and compiled through a backwards design format where the NGSS and CCSS literacy and math standards are focus point of the unit and each lessons helps lead students to a real understanding of the standards. Not only will students be gaining a solid understanding of the NGSS core ideas but an opportunity to practice and develop their science and engineering practices. Each lesson has a literacy component already integrated into it, which helps students improve their core content areas. This unit also provides technology integration pieces that help students develop and foster their technology skills.
Each lesson includes a step by step teacher guide (which walks you through the complete lesson), a material lists, student centered graphic organizers, and vocabulary covered.

**NGSS STANDARDS COVERED IN THIS BUNDLE**
2-PS-1 Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.
2-PS-2 Analyze data obtained from testing different materials
to determine which materials have the properties that are best
suited for an intended purpose.
2-PS1-3. 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.
2-PS1-4 Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot.
2-ETS2 Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
