Here is a previous thread about science

I started doing something I call "Scientist of the Week" a few years ago. It has really helped to spark an interest in science in my classroom. I have also had more dads visit my room in the past three years to assist their child when they are scientist of the week than have been in my classroom all of my 22 years of teaching. Maybe it would be something that could work for your second grade class as well.

Also check out the Studies Weekly science newspaper. It is written to meet each of your state's requirements at your grade level.

Here is a wonderful list of trade books about science topics to share with your pupils during science.

Gail Gibbons is another great source for nonfiction literature to share in science.

Include poetry on science topics. By teaching with these poems during reading time you extend your science learning, as well as knowledge of poetry.

How about foldables with science content?
