Second Grade

Second Grade Science Curriculum Content Timeline

School Year 2018 - 2019

Teachers Access Resources via Learning Maps

Some weeks will include two different topics depending on number of days assigned. This template is to be used as a rough gauge for pacing. 

The intention of the Learning Map is to provide a consistent scope and sequence for the course across the district.  While the instruction and resources will be based on the needs of the students, the expectation is that every student enrolled in the course will learn the benchmarks in each unit.  While benchmarks are discretely displayed, it is expected that overlap will occur.

Review of Earth Science

and Life Science Standards

Interdisciplinary Connections

In addition to the science content benchmarks listed, English Language Development, Literacy, and Mathematics standards are to be purposefully integrated and assessed continually throughout the progression of the course.  These standards reinforce the skills that our students require for the constructive acquisition of science content in the classroom as well as the successful navigation of science issues in society. Collaborative discussion, integration of multiple sources of media, and support of claims with evidence are but a few skills emphasized by the standards.

 

English Language Development Standards: Please see the Florida ELD Performance Definitions and Descriptors for Science for remarks and clarifications (http://www.cpalms.org/uploads/docs/standards/eld/SC.pdf).

ELD.K12.ELL.SC.1:

English language learners communicate information, ideas and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of Science.

ELD.K12.ELL.SI.1:

English language learners communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting.

 

Literacy Standards

LAFS.1.RI.1.1:

Ask and answer questions about key details in a text.

LAFS.1.RI.2.4:

Ask and answer questions to help determine or clarify the meaning of words and phrases in a text.

LAFS.1.RI.4.10:

With prompting and support, read informational texts appropriately complex for grade 1.

LAFS.1.SL.1.1:

Participate in collaborative conversations with diverse partners about grade 1 topics and texts with peers and adults in small and larger groups.

  1. Follow agreed-upon rules for discussions (e.g., listening to others with care, speaking one at a time about the topics and texts under discussion).
  2. Build on others’ talk in conversations by responding to the comments of others through multiple exchanges.
  3. Ask questions to clear up any confusion about the topics and texts under discussion.

LAFS.1.W.3.8:

With guidance and support from adults, recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question.

 

 

Math Standards

MAFS.1.MD.1.a:

Understand how to use a ruler to measure length to the nearest inch.

  1. Recognize that the ruler is a tool that can be used to measure the attribute of length.
  2. Understand the importance of the zero point and end point and that the length measure is the span between two points.
  3. Recognize that the units marked on a ruler have equal length intervals and fit together with no gaps or overlaps. These equal interval distances can be counted to determine the overall length of an object.

MAFS.1.MD.3.4:

Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.
