Balance and Motion
The second grade scientists will be starting the year of by studying the unit on Balance and Motion. We will be studying the motion of objects, including vibrations and sound. We will be observing and comparing how objects balance, spin, and roll, and communicating orally and in
writing the things we discover.We will start by learning metric linear measurement. We’ll
explore the need for standard units, and work with the metric
units and tools used by scientists worldwide. Our goal is that the
metric concepts will have their own frame of reference in your child’s mind, and that in time he or she will think metric.
