Spring is upon us and just as things are busy outside, we are very busy in the classroom. This month we are learning a lot about different life cycles of insects, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and plants. We are hatching eggs in our classroom and hope to see them hatch here in the next few weeks. A few other things we have are butterflies, flowers, and acorn squash for the Community Garden.
On May 1st we will be taking a field trip to Frederick Meijer Gardens to explore the simple machines and butterfly exhibits. This will go perfectly with all the new information we have learned in science.
In math we are moving on from multiplication and we will be learning about decimals. In social studies we will be going beyond Michigan and learning about the different countries, continents and oceans of the world.
It’s going to be a busy, but very exciting month in second grade!
