SCOTT FORESMAN Science (Grade 2, Teacher's Edition)


All resources for successfully teaching Scott Foresman Science are located in an easy-to-use guide. It includes easy-to-follow lesson plans; oversized mini-pages; additional activities; cross-curricular options; quick activities, quick teaching plans, and quick summaries for when time is limited. Lessons are organized into four units: Life Science, Earth Science, Physical Science, and Space and Technology. Each unit contains a balance between important science content and hands-on activities (through scaffolded inquiry) that support every lesson. You'll also find biographies, careers, and a NASA Connection in all units.
