Science (Grade 2) - Movement
The study of moving things will give students a sense of spatial relationships as well as the relationship between non-moving and moving objects. They will learn about the six types of simple machines and how they help humans move things. They will learn that one or more simple machines are used in mechanisms which help objects move.
