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.
