    This second grade science bundle includes both print and digital versions of Plants and Animal Needs & Life Cycles NGSS. It includes literally everything you need to teach, practice, experiment, and assess 17 days of NGSS aligned lessons on plant and animal interdependence, the plant life cycle, animal life cycles, basic needs of plants and animals, and 2nd grade relationships in ecosystems.

    Students learn about:

    · Plant and animal interdependence

    · Plant needs and lifecycles

    · Animal needs and life cycles

    · Seed dispersal

    · Pollination

    · Pollinators

    · Parts of a seed

    · Parts of a plant and flower

    All of the activities are included in both a printable version and in digital format on Google Slides with narrated audio lessons. Detailed lesson plans, teacher binder, lab investigations and a multitude of lesson support materials are included in the printable version.

    By purchasing this bundle, you have everything you need to seamlessly move between in-person teaching, hybrid classrooms, or teaching virtually. The narrated audio lessons make it easy to differentiate for all of your readers and enable your students to listen and learn while working independently at home, or at school.

    Develop a simple model that mimics the function of an animal in dispersing seeds or pollinating plants.
    Plan and conduct an investigation to determine if plants need sunlight and water to grow. Assessment is limited to testing one variable at a time.
    Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
    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.
    Explain how specific images (e.g., a diagram showing how a machine works) contribute to and clarify a text.
