Second grade students have gained an understanding of gravity by reading books, watched video and perfomed experiments that allow them observe falling objects and identify things that prevent them from reaching the ground. They have communicated these observations that similar objects of varying masses fall at the same rate through class discussions and journal entries.  

Students perfomed an experiment in which they dropped different objects from the same height at the same time to gain a deeper understanding of gravity.

Second graders have been developing a deeper number sense by learning about place value, composing and decomposing numbers and by comparing numbers. Students compared numbers by building 3 digit numbers using base ten blocks. The students then used an alligators mouth to show if the number on the left was "greater than", "less then" or "equal" to the number on the rights.

We are learning about the 5 major world religions in social studies.  We learned about Mandalas and how early religions as well as religions today express their beliefs in the art work of mandalas.  There are still mandalas in churches and religions today!  The mandalas are a way to learn your own heart.  The main shape in a mandala is a circle.  Circles are seen in many things, life cycles, planets, moons, everything circles around the center of the universe. We learned how to draw/design our own mandalas.  It was a lot of fun to watch how each mandala was unique to each student no two mandalas were the same.

Second grade students at Brookside learned about Pilgrims coming to America on the Mayflower.  We read books,discussed, and wrote about what they would need to take with them in a trunk.  As a culminating activity we went outside and drew the dimensions of the Mayflower.  Students were given beef jerky and dried apples to eat as they sat within the measurements of the ship.There was not much room, privacy, or variety of food for the 2 months aboard the ship.    We decided it was not a very fun trip.
