Product Description
This unit is designed to do 2 things:
1) Meet Next Generation Science Standards for 2nd Grade: Biodiversity in Ecosystems, AND
2) Make your life EASIER!
Included is everything (well, almost everything) you need for this unit. The teaching of science requires some materials, but I have chosen simple, everyday tools you most likely already have in your classroom.
There are 13 lessons in this unit (including writing a script that answers a question for informative writing), covering major standards under Next Generation Science Standards— Biodiversity in Ecosystems, PLUS the cross-cutting concepts AND connections to ELA and Math Common Core.

Unit Overview
Lesson 1: I can make observations of plants to compare the diversity of life in different habitats. (direct observations OR media-based)
Lesson 2: I can make observations of animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats. (direct observations OR media-based)
Lesson 3: I can explain how many different species of living things live on land and water in the _____________ habitat.
Lesson 4: I can participate in shared research to produce a script that will answer a question.
Lesson 5: (Optional—record scripts as podcast segments (audio only) or a vodcast (with visual supports). I can participate in reading and recording my script that answers a question.
Lesson 6: I can plan an investigation to determine if plants need sunlight and water to grow.
Lesson 7: I can conduct an investigation to determine if plants needs sunlight and water to grow.
Lesson 8: I can use collected data to draw a picture and bar graph to represent the data sets and make comparisons.
Lesson 9: I can look for patterns and order when making observations about the world.
I can show how events have causes that generate observable patterns using data from my plant investigation. I can use evidence to show that plants depend on water and light to grow.
Lesson 10: I can show how the shape and stability of structures in plants are related to their functions.
Lesson 11: I can show how the shape and stability of structures in creatures that pollinate plants are related to their functions.
Lesson 12: I can explain why plants depend on animals for pollination or seed dispersal.
Lesson 13: I can develop a model that mimics the function of an animal dispersing seeds or pollinating plants.

Also included is a unit vocabulary test!
