In second grade, students learn to plan and conduct experiments. From states of matter and how they transform, to creating Earth models using different materials and more. Observation and note taking will continue to be key during second grade as they learn more advanced concepts that will be essential for them in the future.
some of the most common topics covered in 2nd grade science curriculum are:
- Life science (plants and animals and their habits and life cycles)
- Earth/Space science (properties of suns, moons, planets, and stars)
- Physical science (states of matter, electricity, and magnetism)
Your second grade science lesson plans will build on the skills gained in earlier grades and challenge them with progressively more complex material. While facts are important, an effective science curriculum will encourage students to observe, ask questions, and explore concepts for themselves.
