2nd Grade Science - Lakeshore Learning kits?

Recommended Posts

I am having a really hard time finding a science curriculum that I and my daughter like. We did Bookshark 1 last year for first grade. We loved the books and worksheet activities were ok, but hated the experiments. They do not tie in with the readings and I hated the dvd format. We did elemental science for K but I hated having to find all the books and supplies each week and, although we did science reading every week,  the experiments rarely got done. My daughter LOVES science, especially the experiments. I have been looking at Noeo Science Biology 1 and A Reason for Science level 2 for 2nd but neither seems right.  I have read the experiments in Noeo do not work well although we do love using “living books” and A Reason seems too juvenile in content but the amount of writing seems right (my daughter hates to write) so I don’t want to move up a level.  I am seriously thinking of just using the Lakeshore Learning science activity tubs that are separated by content (solar system, rocks and minerals, weather, plants, Force and motion, matter, etc) along with usborne and library books for each subject. If you use the buy one get one 50% off they end up being not much more than A Reason for Science with the kit. I feel like it would be a lot more hands on and still get the benefit of living books.  Thoughts? Suggestions for other Science curriculum? Thank you!

I love everything I have ever gotten from Lakeshore, so I approve!  And Usborne books are wonderful.  Enjoy your science!

Thank you for responding!  Sometimes I just need someone to reassure me I’m not way off base or neglecting my child’s education with my plans! ?

We have a few of the Lakeshore Learning tubs.  You have to keep in mind that they're meant for small groups, so while we loved using them at home, I truly got my money's worth by using them with 5-6 kids at a time in clubs.
If you haven't looked at Mystery Science you probably should.  It sounds like something you would enjoy and right now is less than the price of one LL kit. ?
