MST STEM KITS GRADE 2

 

 

  • Students will use standard and non-standard units of measurement and measuring tools to compare various measurements of objects in terms of mass, length, capacity, and area. Integrated hands-on math activities are also included in this kit.

  • This unit provides students with the opportunity to observe two major types of phenomena in physical science, the states of matter and magnets. Students will observe the three states of matter and how they change from one to another. Students will also explore the properties of magnets. The science skills emphasized in Physical Science are observation, prediction, classifying, creating models, gathering and organizing, and interpreting data. Integrated hands-on math activities are also included in this kit.

  • This unit provides students with the opportunity to observe weather phenomena. Students will use instruments to gather weather data on temperature, wind speed, wind direction, and precipitation. The water cycle is also demonstrated and discussed. Students will investigate the relationship between the earth’s rotation, revolution, time, and seasons. The science skills emphasized in the Weather kit are observing, collecting data, organizing data, interpreting data, and discussing. Integrated hands-on math activities are also included in this kit.

  • Students will complete an in-depth study of plants by examining their stems, roots, and leaves. A study of animals will also be completed. Animals will be grouped according to their major characteristics. Special emphasis will be placed on observing, classifying, collecting data, and predicting. Integrated hands-on math activities are also included in this kit.

    ** Betta fish will be shipped one week after the kit delivery date. Please call us if you need to change shipment of fish to an earlier or later date.

  • Students will develop body awareness through the use of different body parts.  The body part associated with each sense is examined and diagramed.  Diseases and impairments of the senses are defined and explored.  The skills emphasized in the kit are observing, discussing, manipulating materials, and describing.

  • Students will rotate through stations that help assess a student’s level of knowledge and understanding after completing the second grade science kits. Special emphasis is placed on observing, classifying, manipulating, measuring, communicating, and collecting data.

    ** One Assessment kit will be provided per school and should be shared by all second grade level teachers in the building. Shipment will begin in April.
