This bundle of three lessons is compatible with ALL of the Second Grade Next Generation Science Standards* for Physical Science.

The bundle is specially priced at over 35% off!!!

In these lessons, students will learn about physical science concepts, such as gravity, elasticity, air pressure, forces, energy, engineering, refining, minerals, atoms, molecules, solids, liquids, gases, reversible and irreversible changes in states of matter, and so much more!

Here is what’s included in EACH of the THREE lessons:

-A clickable Table of Contents

-Teacher notes and materials list

-Next Generation Science Standards* “I can…” and “I understand…” classroom poster

-Vocabulary cards covering the topics of the lesson

-Worksheet(s) covering the lesson objectives

-Hands-on activity

-Supplemental blog posts explaining the hands-on activity in detail on my website Curious Little Classroom!!!

-An assessment covering the lesson objectives

-Answer keys for worksheets, activity, and assessment

-A comprehensive lesson plan including:
Title, Grade, Objectives, NGSS*, Materials Needed, Connections to Real Life, Connections Across the Curriculum, Anticipated Difficulties with the Content, Pre-Requisite Knowledge, Key Vocabulary, Lesson Delivery Method, Examples for Better Understanding, Assessment, Wrap Up and Review, Extensions, and Modifications.

***Breaking Down Recycling***
This lesson is compatible with the Second Grade Next Generation Science Standard* 2-PS1-3 which states that the student should “[m]ake observations to construct an evidence-based account of how an object made of a small set of pieces can be disassembled and make into a new object.”

This Second Grade Physical Science Recycling lesson introduces students to geological and manufacturing concepts, such as ores, minerals, and refining. They will explore how products they use every day, such as glass, aluminum, and plastic are made and then broken down and made into something new. This lesson covers physical science, geology, engineering, and environmental science. It also covers the topic of sorting and classifying as the students organize the steps of plastic recycling and examine the parts of sand to find silica, which is used to make glass.

***How High Will It Bounce?***
This lesson is compatible with the Second Grade Next Generation Science Standards* 2-PS1-1 and 2-PS1-2, which state that students should “[p]lan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.” They should also “[a]nalyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.”

This How High Will It Bounce lesson introduces students to basic physics concepts, such as forces, energy, and air pressure. The hands-on project has them fill in both a data table and a bar graph after completing their controlled experiment. They will use the bar graph to compare two sets of data, balls dropped from a high height and balls dropped from a low height. They will also learn about elasticity and materials that are elastic, such as rubber.

This lesson is compatible with the Second Grade Next Generation Science Standard 2-PS1-4 which states that the student should “[c]onstruct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot.”

This lesson teaches students about states of matter and reversible and irreversible changes in matter through the study of comets. The students will be introduced to atom and molecules and the molecular structure of molecules, particularly water, when it is a solid, liquid, and gas. The hands-on project uses dry ice to make a homemade comet. Dry ice can move directly from a solid to a liquid through sublimation. Your students will absolutely LOVE watching the dry ice smoke as it sublimates right before your eyes!

These lessons can be used in a general education or special education classroom, in a home school setting, or as an enrichment experience.
