I am a preservice teacher and I am currently working with 2nd graders. I would like to know more activities about what I can incorporate in my classroom. My mentor teacher does not do much science, the day is so packed that she does not get to spend too much time in science but rather in math and reading. The students don't have a science lab either. What are some quick, yet strong content ativities you have done in the second grade with your kiddos?

Diana, because science isn't given the same status as math and reading, some teacher don't do it.  Others don't do it because they don't know the content and are afraid of it.  Is there something that you could do that would join math and science together?  TEKS 2.2C, 2.2D have to do with collecting and recording data.  If you paired that with 2.8A, which is "measuring, record, and graph weather information," you could do a lot of things with math.....which would make the teacher happy!! :-)  Dr. T
