This unit covers ALL of the NGSS for the 2nd grade strand of PS 1-4.
This resource is designed to meet the Disciplinary Core Ideas for NGSS Matter and Its Interactions.
This unit includes hands-on 5 E lessons, interactive notebook flaps, a non fiction article, response page, task cards, integrated art activities and sorting card center activities.
This resource is designed to meet the NGSS standards for 2nd grade:
2-PS1-1. 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.
2-PS1-2. 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.
The following resources are included:
Sorting Cards for Properties of Matter
States of Matter Lessons NGSS
Art and Science Integrate Lessons On Matter
Properties of Matter Lab and Scavenger Hunt
Testing Materials for a Specific Purpose
