Welcome to Second Grade!

Second grade is definitely the place to be!  In second grade, we explore the world God has created through science where we study vertebrates, invertebrates, habitats, and so much more! We also enjoy exploring our nation’s history starting with pilgrims and going forward to the Revolutionary War. We love learning all about the colonies! In math, we learn double and triple-digit addition and subtraction.  We also dive into multiplication. As we study all these areas, we are learning how God designed all of them to work together in His perfect creation.

We go on three fieldtrips during second grade. We explore the San Diego Safari Park, Riley’s Farm, and we get to go whale watching! These trips perfectly show God’s hand in our world.
