TN.2.ESS.Earth and Space Sciences (ESS)
Earth and Space Sciences (ESS)
2.ESS1. Earth’s Place in the Universe 2.ESS1.1. Recognize that some of Earth’s natural processes are cyclical, while others have a beginning and an end. Some events happen quickly, while others occur slowly over time. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Water
2.ESS2. Earth’s Systems 2.ESS2.3. Compare simple maps of different land areas to observe the shapes and kinds of land (rock, soil, sand) and water (river, stream, lake, pond).
2.ESS2.4. Use information obtained from reliable sources to explain that water is found in the ocean, rivers, streams, lakes, and ponds, and may be solid or liquid.
TN.2.ETS.Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science (ETS)
Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science (ETS)
2.ETS2. Links Among Engineering, Technology, Science, and Society 2.ETS2.1. Use appropriate tools to make observations, record data, and refine design ideas.
TN.2.LS.Life Sciences (LS)
2.LS1. From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes 2.LS1.1. Use evidence and observations to explain that many animals use their body parts and senses in different ways to see, hear, grasp objects, protect themselves, move from place to place, and seek, find, and take in food, water, and air.
2.LS1.2. Obtain and communicate information to classify animals (vertebrates-mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, fish, invertebrates-insects) based on their physical characteristics. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Animals Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Life cycles
2.LS1.3. Use simple graphical representations to show that species have unique and diverse life cycles. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Plants
2.LS2. Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics 2.LS2.1. Develop and use models to compare how animals depend on their surroundings and other living things to meet their needs in the places they live. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Animals
2.LS2.2. Predict what happens to animals when the environment changes (temperature, cutting down trees, wildfires, pollution, salinity, drought, land preservation).
2.LS3. Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits 2.LS3.1. Use evidence to explain that living things have physical traits inherited from parents and that variations of these traits exist in groups of similar organisms.
TN.2.PS.Physical Sciences (PS)
2.PS2. Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions 2.PS2.2. Evaluate the effects of different strengths and directions of a push or a pull on the motion of an object.
2.PS3. Energy 2.PS3.2. Make observations and conduct experiments to provide evidence that friction produces heat and reduces or increases the motion of an object.
2.PS4. Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer 2.PS4.1. Plan and conduct investigations to demonstrate the cause and effect relationship between vibrating materials (tuning forks, water, bells) and sound. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Sound
2.PS4.2. Use tools and materials to design and build a device to understand that light and sound travel in waves and can send signals over a distance.
