Introduction to Focus on 2nd
In the second grade Focus on Second (Fo2) curriculum, students are guided by their teachers to deeply analyze meaningful topics. Fo2 structures opportunities for children and adults to work together to analyze texts, ideas, images, structures, works of art, and words. Students investigate Science and Engineering topics, consider stories of history and community, and experiment with new and familiar materials to communicate powerful ideas through multi-dimensional projects. Units of study include:
- How we learn in our school communities
- The forces of wind and water
- Who are we?
- The power of pollinators
