Second Grade Science, First Semester (ESC1111B)

Second Grade Science introduces students to the process of observation and how important it is to the study of science.  Learners will identify their five senses and why they are critical to observation.   Students will use these observation skills throughout the course as they examine many different types of animals and their environments.  Students begin by observing ants in their own environments and continue onto learning the different types of birds.  Students will come to understand plant and animal rhythms and will perform small experiments with plants.  Stories will be used to teach the students about nature and interactions that humans have with nature.  They will continue to learn about animals and their characteristics habitats, and needs.  Students will learn through video, audio stories, hands-on participation and observation with nature.  The teachers will conduct live assessments for the topics that had been covered throughout the week’s lessons.    Grade 2 Science provides students with the opportunity to expand their minds and see for themselves the way that animals and nature are a part of their everyday lives.
