Second Grade Science
Here are the puppets from our "world famous puppet show." We have been learning about seed dispersal. The Next Generation Science Standards want second graders to understand the connection of animals in seed dispersal. Ask your second grader about it.
We also looked at a giant sunflower and noticed the outer shell of the seed. Magnifying glasses helped us see details of the seed and plant up close. Many students wanted to bring seeds home, your child may have a bag of seeds in his/her back pack.
Next we are going to be looking at what plants need to grow. We saw some videos of plants grown in dirt and plants grown in just water (on a paper towel). We will do our own classroom experiments.
