2nd Grade
Did you ever stop to think that the water in a swimming pool is probably the same water that the Romans drank? Do you know that a penguin is a bird and a whale is a mammal? Indian Hollow second graders can provide you with these facts and more!

During the school year, the children explore the many worlds of science: matter, animals, the water cycle and the solar system. They learn aboClipart Image: Free school related clipart WEB images provided by High Plains Phi Delta Kappa ... album gallery clip art GIF picture graphic download school education scrapbook GIF files animationut their hearts and how to keep their bodies healthy. During the measurement unit, they measure all kinds of things--chairs, desks, people, distances. Mathematics is a time of hands-on activities. Our second graders create graphs of distances, favorite teams, Olympic medals and favorite fairy tales. The children are encouraged to solve problems, study patterns and explore geometry.

Reading and writing are integrated within the curriculum. We read books, magazines, charts, poems, newspapers and encyclopedias. We write stories, poems, journals, and pen pal letters. Each child publishes at least one book through our school's Publishing Center.

Technology provides us with the opportunities to do research on the Internet, create graphs, publish written work, and use critical thinking skills.

During the year, our second graders interact with their kindergarten buddies and work hard to set a good example for them. They meet monthly and read and write together.

Second grade at Indian Hollow is a time of exploring, hypothesizing, experimenting, interacting and learning!
