When we return from the Golden Week holiday we will be starting our How We Organize Ourselves unit. In this unit, we will be focusing on the scientific process and learning about why scientists all over the world follow the same procedure whenever they conduct an experiment. We will be learning about the three states of matter (solid, liquid, and gas), and how they change. We will make connections to writing by learning how to write “how to” stories teaching others the steps involved to complete a task, we will connect to reading by learning about non-fiction text features; and we will connect to math by learning about measurement in inches and centimetres.
If you wish to have a chat with your child over the break about this, here are some resources that Ms. Brandt found that might be helpful:
Science Bob website with lots of fun experiments that you can do at home: https://sciencebob.com/category/experiments/
Explanations of the different parts of the scientific process and what it means:
Also, here is a quizlet that Ms. Brandt created to learn some of the key vocabulary that we will be using during our unit: https://quizlet.com/293383261/2nd-grade-science-vocabulary-matter-flash-cards/
As always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.
