2nd Grade FOCUS
News You Can Use! Spring 2014
"Weather Reporter, a second-grade Earth and space science unit, engages students in a scenario-based approach to observing, measuring, and analyzing weather phenomena. Focusing on the macroconcept of change, Weather Reporter builds upon students' prior knowledge of weather, and their (soon to be) newly acquired understanding of meteorology and encourages them to use inquiry skills to observe, predict, and forecast the weather. Weather Reporter promotes lifelong learning by encouraging students to investigate naturally occurring weather patterns after the completion of the unit."
This unit will address many of the science, math, and language arts AKS for 2nd grade, as well as previewing many concepts for 3rd and 4th grade science!
This unit looks to be a lot of fun, and very informative! We can't wait to get started!!
