For science we have been using Mystery Science. There are two type of lessons. One is called the mini lesson and the other is the full lesson. If you do not have much time, then choose the mini lessons for second grade. The two units we did not complete were "Why is there sand at the beach?" and "If you floated down a river, where would you end up?"
