↓What will your child LEARN
This class is aligned to Alberta Education standards for 2nd grade science. While it covers many of the same topics covered in the previous science classes, it expands on these ideas, adding a greater depth of knowledge. Students will learn the basics of force, will explore gravity, and will learn about magnets Hands-on learning occurs as your child “plays” with magnets to identify, compare and predict how materials can be attracted or repelled.
They will review the states of matter, while adding an explanation of how a substance changes from one state to another. The students will learn new things about plant an animals, including how they move, how they get food, and what keeps them safe from harm. Students will review the function of key organs in the human body, such as the brain, heart, muscles, and digestive system. In addition, students will learn about how to keep their body healthy through proper food, exercise, and avoiding germs when possible. Students will review the function and motion of the Earth, Moon, and stars. They will also learn about slow and fast land changes and fossils. Students will get outside and in the dirt to describe small flying and crawling creatures, like insects or slugs. They will learn what these critters eat, or who eats them, and what helps them survive. Finally, the students will learn about weather, including the water cycle, the four seasons, and the types of severe weather they may experience.
