Science: Our Science Goal For The Week
We are writing to tell you about our next Science unit called Toys R Us. Over the next few weeks, students will be working to answer the question: Is it possible to design an entertaining game or toy?
Throughout this unit, students will show their learning by:
· communicating ideas about magnetism.
· describing and comparing patterns of movement.
· describing how force causes change.
· designing a game or toy.
· communicating ideas about force and motion.
We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. You can support your child’s learning by talking with your child about this unit and encouraging her/him to ask questions and think hard.
We can’t wait for the fun and games to begin with our second graders and see where their journey of learning takes them!
