1 Unit 1: Work Like a Scientist Identify inquiry skills Ask and raise questions about the world and investigate them by observing, Explain the difference between what you observe and what you think Scientific method activities Use and work with scientific tools Make s Conduct an experiment using the scientific method steps SC.2.N.1.2, SC.2.N.1.6 Inquiry skills, science tools, thermometer, investigate, hypothesis, draw conclusions, communicate identify science tools used for observing and measuring Identify and demonstrate scientific methods and processes Explain that similar results should occur when investigations are repeated Explain how scientists are continually looking for new ways to solve problems

2 Unit 10: Basic Needs and Environments Identify sunlight, air, water, nutrients, and space as the basic needs of plants, animals, and humans Explain that a living thing must meet its basic needs in order to survive Research and make a model of a different environments Plant experiments with basic needs SC.2.L.17.1 SC.2.L.17.2 SC.2.N.1.6 Basic needs, nutrients, survive, lungs, gills, shelter, environment, habitat Explain that living things will die if their basic needs are not met Describe some way in which animals depend on plants to meet their basic needs Compare and contrast the basic needs of plants and animals Recognize and explain that living things are found just about everywhere on Earth Define an environment with living and nonliving things Living things are best suited in certain habitats

3 Unit 4: All About Matter Identify and describe properties of matter Identify tools that are used to measure objects Identify solids, liquids, and gases Describe and compare the properties of solids, liquids, and gases Observe each state of matter Sort and describe items based of their properties of matter Use tools to measure properties of matter in different objects SC.2.N.1.2, SC.2.N.1.6, SC.2.P.8.1, SC.2.P.8.2, SC.2.P.8.3, SC.2.P.8.4, SC.2.P.8.6 Matter, property, texture, measure, weight, mass, solid, liquid, gas, water vapor Identify water in each of the three states of matter

4 Unit 7: Forces and Motion Classify forces as pushes or pulls Explain how forces can change motion Demonstrate that the amount and direction of a force exerted on an object will determine how much and what direction the object will move Magnet experiments Observe objects that attract and repel with magnets Observe different types of magnets Measure objects with different forces SC.2.N.1.2, SC.2.P.8.1, SC.2.P.13.1, SC.2.P.13.2 SC.2.P.13.3, SC.2.P.13.4 Motion, force, speed, gravity, friction, magnet, pole, repel, attract Explain how objects fall to the ground unless something holds them up Observe and demonstrate that magnets can move objects without touching them Sort objects based on whether they are attracted by a magnet

5 Unit 3: Weather Explain that air is all around us and that moving air is called wind Observe, measure, and describe how weather changes over time Identify tools to measure and predict the weather Keep a daily weather log Tornado experiment Severe Weather safety tips Severe Plan safety plan SC.2.N.1.2, SC.2.N.1.6, SC.2.P.8.1, SC.2.P.8.5 SC.2.E.7.1, SC.2.E.7.2, SC.2.E.7.3, SC.2.E.7.4, SC.2.E.7.5 Weather, precipitation, temperature, water cycle, evaporate, condense, tornado, lightening, hurricane, thunderstorm Describe and compare patterns in weather from day to day and season to season Explain the water cycle Identify kids of severe weather events Explain how scientists help people stay safe from severe weather situations Describe how people prepare for severe weather

6 Unit 8: Human Body Identify where major human body parts are located in the body Describe the functions of the brain, heart, the lungs, the stomach, the muscles, and the skeleton Create human body model Experiments with breathing and pulse SC.2.L.14.1 Brain, stomach, skeleton, muscles, lungs, heart

7 Unit 9: Life Cycles Define the term life cycle and explain that different animals have different life cycles Explain that all life cycles include birthing/hatching, growth and development, maturity, and reproduction Plant Life Cycle experiment Butterfly life cycle experiment Plant life cycle journal Butterfly life cycle journal SC.2.L.16.1 Reproduce, life cycle,, metamorphos is, tadpole, larva, pupa, seed, germinate, seedling, cone Identify some animals including frogs and butterflies that undergo complete metamorphosis during their life cycles Describe the sequence of the stages of the frog, butterfly, bird, fish, and mammal life cycles Recognize that all plants have life cycles Explain that many plants begin life as a seed Compare the rates at which different plants grow and mature Distinguish between plants that make seeds and flowers and plans that make seeds and cones

8 Unit 6: Energy Identify forms and sources of energy Explain how people use energy in their daily lives Classify sources of energy in the classroom Solar energy experiment SC.2.N.1.6, SC.2.P.10.1 Energy, solar energy, heat, light, electricity
