Science in 2nd Grade


Second Grade science builds on the foundational knowledge and skills built throughout Kindergarten and First grade. Through Elevate Science, students are exposed to weekly labs, engineering activities, hands-on exploration, and exploration of concepts aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards.  In second grade, students work in small groups and independently to investigate concepts, ask questions, and discover solutions.

Students in 2nd grade will focus on:

  • Earth's Water & Land
  • Properties of Matter
  • Changing Matter
  • Earth's Processes
  • Plants & Animals
  • Habitats
  • Engineering & Design
