Bundle Description
This is a 2 in 1 BUNDLE that includes a complete and fully integrated 146-page unit for teaching “Air and Water" PLUS more than 40 rich math word problems.

===========ABOUT THE SCIENCE===========
This science unit has been carefully crafted to give you everything you need to meet Ontario’s science curriculum expectations for grade 2’s “Understanding Earth and Space Systems" strand.

This package contains resources for teaching:

* I can describe water and how it changes: The states of water; the water cycle; water is everywhere
* I can tell how living things use water to meet their needs: the ways that people, animals, and plants need and use water, and what happens when they don't get enough.
*** Special feature text "Water is Life" highlighting how a new type of drill is making it possible to get clean water to remote areas of Africa.
* I can describe air and how it changes.
* I can tell how living things use air to meet their needs: people, animals, plants.
* The problem of air pollution.
* I can share ideas about how to protect air and water

TEN scientific investigations are included, with detailed instructions, everyday materials, and organizers for students to record results and conclusions.

Two summative projects are given as options, both allowing students to explain how they can protect the air or the water. Templates, organizers, and a marking checkbric are included.

As well, a marking checkbric for the unit is included that aligns to the unit's success criteria and learning goals.

===========ABOUT THE MATH===========
This math bundle deepens and extends your science teaching for the “Air and Water" unit. 40+ rich word problems are included for four out of five strands of math!

How to use this package: Here are two ways you could use this package; however feel free to adapt it in a way that best suits your learners.

1) Revisit and review MATH concepts throughout the year (called recursive or “spiral” math). Use this whole package or portions of it while you are in the science unit, conducting mini-lessons on the math concepts to enable students to complete the problems. This is effective for keeping strategies and concepts fresh in students’ minds while they continue into new material.

2) Revisit or think ahead about SCIENCE strands, extending the science learning throughout the year. Use the math problems when you focus on a particular math skill or strand, revisiting the science learning from earlier in the year. If you haven’t started this unit yet, you will be equipping students with richer schema for when you begin the unit later!

Many of the math problems supplied in this package are offer several different entry points at varying degrees of difficulty. At times, problems are open ended in a way that students can choose numbers they feel confident working with.

Here's what you're getting:

Number Sense and Numeration
** addition and subtraction; repeated addition (exploring multiplication), division, and fractions

Patterning and Algebra
** number patterns

Data Management and Probability
** sorting, graphing

Measurement
* All expectations relating to TEMPERATURE are covered in full
** Linear Measurement

=============

Integrated? With What?

There’s NEVER enough time!! That’s why I believe in cross-curricular integration as much as possible. In this unit you will find:

* Twenty carefully crafted non-fiction reading texts with features such as diagrams, captions, text boxes, maps and so on to help you teach the content. Two newspaper-style articles, one 8-page feature text, "Water is Life", and a short narrative are a part. Beautiful photographs illustrate each text. No endless searching for that perfect library book!

* Multiple opportunities included to strengthen mapping skills relating to the air and water of the world.

* Writing! Opinion writing (are zoos helpful or harmful to animals?); honing research skills; writing non-fiction texts.

* Some articles also cross-connect with other science or social studies strands. E.g., "Water is Life" connects to Global Communities (Social Studies).
