Standards Reflection

Researching about second grade science standards and learning about the other grades from the other groups really opened my eyes to some topics that I hadn't considered were to be "taught" in a science lesson. For example, I think the most notable of that is learning how to form an opinion/argument and defend that with proper evidence to back it up. In the younger grades of kindergarten and first grade, the children are introduced to the ideas of discussion through argument. After that, the second and third grades learn to back up the argument through the use of details that they have noticed, mainly on the physical level. After those grades, the defense becomes on more of a deeper thought process, and helps introduce the ideas of abstract concepts and ideas.

      Interestingly, many others shared your insight:

      We will definitely be working on this during our course.
