Earth and Space Science

Earth and Space Science


We spent a good part of the beginning of the school year learning about Earth.  This lesson will focus on its place in the solar system and how it is different from the other planets.



Independent Readings:

I have my students read library books about our science topics.  Here’s a few we grabbed from the library for this lesson:

Earth (Fact Finders: Space) by Alice Harman (this was a great easy reader)


Narration Page:

Elemental Science offers a student workbook with printable narration pages with a picture to color as well as lines for students to use for writing information they learned or found interesting.  By this stage in 2nd grade, my students are writing at least 3 sentences sharing from our lesson or  from what they have discovered in their readings.

You can use a blank sheet of paper and have your students draw a picture and/or write their narration on it.
