This unit is a comprehensive STEM curriculum that covers all of the NGSS physical science and engineering standards for 2nd grade. 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.
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.
