Second Grade

Below you will find educational materials for second grade teachers exploring agriculture in the classroom. All lesson plans were created based on Mississippi’s 2018 College-and-Career Readiness Standards in Math, Science, and Social Studies as well as the National Agricultural Literacy Outcomes, and the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation’s recognized commodities.

This curriculum was developed by the Mississippi State University School of Human Science for the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation’s Ag in the Classroom Program.

Science

Catfish: L.2.1 Students will demonstrate an understanding of the classification of animals based on physical characteristics.

L.2.1.2 Classify vertebrates (mammals, fish, birds, amphibians, and reptiles) based on their physical characteristics.

Corn: L.2.1.2 Classify vertebrates (mammals, fish, birds, amphibians, and reptiles) based on their physical characteristics.

Beef: L.2.2 Students will demonstrate an understanding of how living things change in form as they go through the general stages of a life cycle.

Forestry: L.2.2 Students will demonstrate an understanding of how living things change in form as they go through the general stages of a life cycle.

Sweet Potatoes: L.2.2 Students will demonstrate an understanding of how living things change in form as they go through the general stages of a life cycle.

Peanuts: L.2.2 Students will demonstrate an understanding of how living things change in form as they go through the general stages of a life cycle.

Honey: L.2.3A Students will demonstrate an understanding of the interdependence of living things and the environment in which they live.

L.2.3A.2  Construct scientific arguments to explain how animals can make major changes (e.g., beaver dams obstruct streams, or large deer populations destroying crops) and minor changes to their environments (e.g., ant hills, crawfish burrows, mole tunnels).

Poultry: L.2.3A Students will demonstrate an understanding of the interdependence of living things and the environment in which they live.

Soybeans: L.2.3A Students will demonstrate an understanding of the interdependence of living things and the environment in which they live.

Swine: L.2.3A Students will demonstrate an understanding of the interdependence of living things and the environment in which they live.

Dairy: P.2.6.3 Develop a plan to change the force (push or pull) of friction to solve a human problem (e.g., improve the ride on a playground slide or make a toy car or truck go faster). Use an engineering design process to define the problem, design, construct, evaluate, and improve the plan.
