2nd Grade Science

What we do:

  • Marine mammals, life cycle, tide pools, pebbles, sand and silt, and habitats
  • Experiment with minerals and the rock cycle
  • Explore where earth materials are found and ways they are used
  • Develop an understanding that objects can have many properties, including size, weight, shape, color, and texture

How we do it:

  • Plan and conduct simple investigations
  • Employ tools and techniques to gather data
  • Use data to construct reasonable explanations
  • FOSS Kit (Pebbles, Sand and Silt)
    A research-based science curriculum developed at the Lawrence Hall of Science, University of California at Berkeley, FOSS combines proven teaching strategies with field-tested materials to promote scientific literacy and student achievement. Students construct an understanding of science concepts through their own investigations and analyses, using laboratory equipment, student readings, and interactive technology.
