November: What is Grade 2 studying?
Look Around and Explore!
Essential Questions: How does exploring help us understand the world around us?
Unit Summary: Do you know we don’t have to travel to far off distant lands to explore and learn about people and places? Exploration can take place inside a book! In this module, children will listen to and read texts that inspire them to look at the details in the world around them to learn new things.
Writing: Students will use the writing process to craft a Descriptive Essay. We will share and celebrate our published essay.
