Year 2, Term 3 Exam: Homeschool exams and tests for second grade

Here are our recent exams. We include some fun things in the afternoons and work diligently and purposefully on the handful of questions that I ask in the mornings. I thought I'd share them with you!

Year 2, Term 3 Exam

Nature Study and Literature: Characterization with visual expression (diagrams, blow-outs, maps, graphic organizers, chart)

Birds have been created in a way that allows them to survive through the winter. They either stay in the area that they are from or migrate to other places. Spend some time observing a bird today. Sketch it and color with colored pencils as neatly as you can; include labels of the parts that make it unique and the parts that enable it to survive the winter weather.  



History, Geography, and Government: Mood with written expression (narration, proposal, persuade, problem/solution, instructions, list, poetry) 

When Joan of Arc lived in France, the Hundreds Year War was going strong. Throughout the story of her life there are many different events. How would you feel being there with her? Would you be scared, content, worried, anxious, or joyful? Explain how you’d feel. You can narrate it or write a poem.

Music and Artist: Drama, Movement, and Change with creative expression (handicraft, recycled material project, diorama, cooking, land art, or art media: collage, paint, mold, chalk, pencil)

We’ve studied 3 series of paintings by Thomas Cole this term and Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel. These series show changes over time. Think about the Garden of Eden pictures, the Voyage of Life, and the Course of Empire. All of the paintings show how things change over time. The song Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel shows changes that occur throughout the story. Choosing your own creative way to express it…choose something that changes over time and show the changes in your own series. 



Literature: View point with movement 
(play, puppet show, music, dance)

We’ve read Pilgrims Progress, Robin Hood, and the Comedy of Errors this term. In each of those stories we know how certain people feel…Christian, Robin Hood, and the folks in the Comedy of Errors. Show how someone else in the story might feel about those same events through movement? 



Science: Background with analytical expression (game, puzzle, crossword, word search) 

We have completed several investigations on stars and rocks this term. Create a game, puzzle, or word game to show what you’ve discovered.

Bible: The Greater Meaning with oral expression (presentation: Defend, Persuade, judge, compare/contrast, inform, narration) 

Comparing Joseph and the story of the Prodigal son, we can see something about the way that we are loved by God. In both stories, special sons were welcomed home by a father. Explain what conclusions you can draw about how these stories relate to us?



Wishing you homeschool blessings,
