Skyrockets - Second Grade Core- Robin Hawley
The Skyrockets are investigating the question- What is a system? To answer this question, we are going to investigate the human machine- a machine more amazing than any machine ever invented! Students will conduct their own Expert Study during this exciting and engaging unit. In March, we will shift gears to social studies content as we explore farm systems, with particular focus on the question: what makes a system sustainable? Non-fiction writing instruction will also take place in Core this year, as our Skyrocket skills strengthen through exploring and producing a variety of non-fiction texts, magazines, science journals, etc. New to our core class this year will be three bonus hours per week to focus on language arts mechanics-spelling, grammar and handwriting. Through a system of hands-on center activities, students will play games, complete puzzles, and practice.
