2nd Grade Science Curriculum

Thanks so much for viewing my 2nd Grade Science Curriculum units bundled. 2nd Grade Science Curriculum is an engaging science curriculum with young learners in mind! 2nd Grade Science Curriculum is standards-based and encourages young learners to think “outside the box” and prove their thinking through hands-on and engaging learning experiences.

What is 2nd Grade Science Curriculum?

2nd Grade Science Curriculum is an engaging science curriculum with young learners in mind! 2nd Grade Science Curriculum is standards-based and encourages young learners to think “outside the box” as well as prove their thinking through hands-on and engaging learning experiences. 2nd Grade Science Curriculum is based upon five units: Properties of Matter, Plant Life, Ecosystems, Earth’s Systems, and Space/Weather. Each unit is broken down into 10 lessons, and each lesson can take from 1-2 days to complete. Each unit covers at least two weeks of instruction. The lesson plan has the standards covered, materials list, lesson vocabulary, detailed activity lesson plans, and all necessary student follow-up practice sheets.

2nd Grade Science Curriculum encourages a daily routine, but please know that as the teacher you can adjust the lessons and make them best work for your daily schedule and time allotment. With each lesson the students will partake in a quick lesson opener and skill lesson. Each day the students will take part in hands-on or think-provoking activity. Please note that all student follow-up practice sheets can be shrunk and placed into a student science journal. You can also choose to have students track their daily science activities in their journal with or without the included response sheets.

What is included in each unit?

- 2 weeks of lesson plans (editable version included)
- Custom written books (can be printed or displayed on an interactive board)

2-PS1-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable
properties.

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
