Description

Teaching second grade science aligned the Next Generation Science Standards is quite challenging without quality resources to guide you. These in-depth units address all 2nd grade NGSS topics and enable you to plan and teach high-engagement, three-dimensional science lessons.

The six units in this bundle blend three important aspects of science and engineering education: the content, the skills, and the big picture ideas. These units incorporate phenomena, integrate Crosscutting Concepts, and provide engaging content contained in the Disciplinary Core Ideas in the Next Generation Science Standards for 2nd grade.

The science and engineering practices embedded in each unit give your students opportunities to learn and apply science practice skills and engineering design while building an understanding of the interconnectedness of the natural world and the scientists and engineers that investigate it.

Teaching PowerPoints

Each unit in this year-long series includes an in-depth teacher-led PowerPoint using real photos that present the science content in a vibrant and engaging format. All lessons include turn and talk partner discussion questions and are followed by science journal activities to reinforce the lessons and apply content vocabulary.

Labs/Investigations

Every lesson includes an investigation or STEM lab for students to engage in a combination of: designing and building models, drawing diagrams, conducting simulations, designing solutions to problems in the natural world, collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data, using tables and graphs, incorporating mathematical practices, and collaboratively planning and carrying out investigations.

Crosscutting Concepts - Science Centers

Science centers that focus on the 7 crosscutting concepts are included across the series. Students explore cause and effect relationships, patterns in nature, stability and change, systems and system models, structure and function, scale and map making, sequencing events, and solving science related math word problems.

Teacher Guides & Lesson Plans

Detailed, scripted lesson plans, step-by-step lab procedures with pictures, materials lists and management tips are all included in the teacher guide. Easily organize your materials using the included planning binder.

Assessments

Exit ticket quizzes for each lesson, followed by a unit test, are included for each unit in two formats. Easily differentiate for your students using either the multiple choice, short written response, or fill in the blank format.

Each unit has is intended to be taught over approximately 2-3 weeks depending on the amount of time you have for science and the number of labs you choose to do. This pacing can be adjusted to meet your needs and schedule with a multitude of resources to extend the learning longer than 2-3 weeks, or shortened by skipping some of the labs.

This is a money saving bundle. If purchased separately, these units cost $108. By purchasing the bundle you receive an entire unit free.

Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.
Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.
Ask and answer such questions as who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate understanding of key details in a text.
Describe the connection between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in technical procedures in a text.
