This unit is in line with 2nd Grade Science Curriculum. In the 1st Unit students develop inquiry skills. They are encouraged to ask questions, listen, and observe the world around them. The term ‘think like a scientist” is used to help them develop a curious mind. Students are encouraged to follow the five scientific method steps: Make an observation, ask a question, form a hypotheses or testable explanation, make a prediction based on the hypothesis, and finally test the prediction.
