Science of Massachusetts: Discover Nature in Your Neighborhood (K-2)

Science helps us learn about the world around us and why things work the way they do! Join Mass Audubon educators to discover how to be a scientist exploring nature around your home or school. This unit introduces fundamental science skills and language at a developmentally appropriate level for K-2 students, with an emphasis on learning outdoors. Lessons focus on using our senses to make observations, practicing sketching and writing skills in a nature journal, and fostering excitement and curiosity for safe outdoor exploration. This unit lays the foundation to prepare students for additional Science of Massachusetts units.
