The Second Grade Unit Plan is titled, Our Melting Oceans, Solid and Liquid Water.  In this unit, students will describe that there is both solid and liquid water in the ocean and that ocean ice is melting faster due to climate change. Students will identify and learn about different solutions to mitigate climate change.

The unit plan contains five detailed lesson plans. The unit plan includes videos related to the unit's topic, student worksheets, a final project, and a teacher resources section. A PowerPoint that goes along with this unit plan has also been included. 

Each of the Sustainability for Young Learners Courses allows students to come up with sustainability and climate-related solutions that they can implement into their own life.

The objective of the lesson: Students will describe that there is both solid and liquid water in the ocean and that ocean ice is melting faster due to climate change. Students will identify and learn about different solutions to mitigate climate change.
