2nd Grade Summer Camp Resources
Week 4: July 27th-31st
This week we closed out our inquiry unit with an opinion writing assignment. Students have learned about several different social and solitary animals and the different ways they survive. They were then asked to decide whether they would rather be a social or solitary animal and why. Their answers have been thoughtful, insightful, and rooted in facts we learned this summer.
Week 3: July 20th-24th
This week, we explored solitary animals who survive without the help of a social group. We observed and analyzed octopuses and leopards, researched further on Epic, and wrote informative paragraphs about how each animal survives on their own. We are one step closer to answering our target question: Why aren't all animals friendly?
Week 2: July 13th-17th
In order to determine why some animals are considered unfriendly, we first had to learn more about "friendly" animals! This week, we focused on animals that work together in social groups. We watched videos, observed animal behaviors, and did independent research to learn more. We also had a special guest, Ms. Adams, teach us about service dogs to learn more about what motivates some animals to help others.

Week 1: July 6th-10th
This week we began by building our community and brainstorming inquiry questions. On Tuesday, we used Google Forms to vote for our favorite question. The winner was "Why aren't all animals friendly?". The rest of our time together we will be working together to answer this question.
