Click and teach. 18 Weeks of Lessons! 90 Daily Lessons! All of the NGSS standards covered. (18 weeks for science because most teachers alternate and do the other 18 weeks of social studies.)
18 weeks of science lessons, student investigation booklets, simple projects, and activities. The activities will make teaching science with the Next Generation Science Standards SO Easy!
Completely aligned with the Earth Science Engineering Design, Physical Science, and Life Science standards. Multitude of teaching modalities used. So easy to teach. Click and teach. Very little prep.. Just set out supplies for the week and be ready for the students to learn through exploration.
It is designed to cover everything that we are told to cover and how we are told to cover it. Covers use of technology, high engagement, games, activities, simple investigations, focused lessons, formative, summative, alternative, and project-based assessments.

Click through and teach.
1) Print and put in binder. (binder cover included)
2) Using the science supply list, gather supplies, put into tub, and use the science supply label.
3) go to http://secondgradesciencengss.weebly.com/weeks-1-9.html to follow week by week.
Your role as a teacher would be to lead inquiries and facilitate.
Students' role would be to discover and explore.
To use this, students need access to computers for online practice. The teacher needs a projector, projector board, smartboard, or interactive board to do play and discuss video clips, and model the activities and games.
Lesson Plans (includes standards, student objectives, essential questions, procedure)
Colorful/Fun/Interactive Student Handouts
List of Formative and Summative Assessments (Assessments included)
Simple Science Investigations
Simple Science Activities
Supply Lists (three ways week by week, one page at a glance, and checklist)
Seamless Incorporation of Technology
Science Tub Label
A website to go with the lessons to make teaching organized and simplistic.
"For the Teacher" cards
*Created to make teaching science simple, but with impact.
*The shift in teaching is that teachers have to be well planned to promote learning through engagement. With this shift, the way teaching looks has changed. It should look like students exploring and discovering and teachers facilitating and asking how, why, when,etc. questions.
Exploratory Lessons, Science Projects, Activities, and Games inlcude....
All of the Next Generation Science Second Grade Standards (Plus some CCSS ones as a bonus!)
Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science
2.ETS1.1 Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
2.ETS1.2 Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
2.ETS1.3 Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
Earth & Space Sciences
2.ESS1.1 Make observations from media to construct an evidence-based account that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly.
2.ESS2.1 Compare multiple solutions designed to slow or prevent wind or water from changing the shape of the land.
2.ESS2.2 Develop a model to represent the shapes and kinds of land and bodies of water in an area.
2.ESS2.3 Obtain information to identify where water is found on Earth and that it can be solid or liquid.
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 cannot.
2.LS2.1 Plan and conduct an investigation to determine if plants need sunlight and water to grow.
2.LS2.2 Develop a simple model that mimics the function of an animal in dispersing seeds or pollinating plants.
2.LS4.1 Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats.
