Science 2 (Hybrid)
Through a banded standards approach, students will study historical and mechanical technology (how things are made); geology (rocks and minerals); Meteorology (weather); biology (plants, animals, babies and habitats); and microscopy. Students will return again to study each and every one of these topics in later years. The Usborne Book of Knowledge serves as a key book for Science 2. But you'll also enjoy a biography of Marie Curie, a colorful book devoted to weather and two zany "Magic School Bus" books. The 30 primary experiments this year deal with weather (meteorology), the human body, and batteries (electricity).
