Second Grade Science Curriculum
The Second Grade Science Curriculum Package includes:
- Teacher's Manual
- Resource Pack.
The Lab Kit is not included in this package, but a package with the lab kit is available.
The McRuffy Science series teaches life science, earth science, physical science, and scientific inquiry in an engaging approach that is very activity oriented. Students think and learn like scientists through the many hands-on activities and demonstrations. As a result, students experience science and learn to be a scientist.
The Second Grade Science Curriculum also features lessons emphasizing content reading skills. These skills are helpful in reading to learn (versus learning to read). The lessons and specific techniques used are noted in the lesson plans. These skills can be transferred to other subjects. They are written in such a way as to teach the teacher new instructional techniques.
Detailed daily lesson plans in the Teacher’s Manual clearly state the objectives, tell what is needed to prepare for the lessons, and give clear directions on how to teach the concepts. Evaluation standards are presented for each unit.
The Workbook provides colorful activities to reinforce concepts taught in the lessons. The Second Grade Workbook contains both activities and articles. The articles are designed to help build content reading skills and science knowledge.
The Resource Pack features card activities, photo cards, posters, game boards, and more.
