For science there are lessons about landforms, Natural resources, motion, weather, dinosaurs, and plants and animals. Each subject has a list of youtube links to go along with the lessons. For example the science lessons on weather has links to videos about weather. You can see the questions in the picture below.
I watched most of the videos about dinosaurs with my boys and they were pretty good and entertaining. The questions were basic and seemed to skirt evolution. Here is a sample for T-rex dinosaurs.
Reading, Grammar, and Books
For reading the curriculum is geared for those who are already reading at second-grade level. There are reading guides for the recommended books.
The books to go along with the curriculum are from a website called Wilbooks.com. With the curriculum, you get a membership to Wilbooks.
Here is a sample of one of the reading guides.
Grammar was pretty straightforward. Here is a sample worksheet for a grammar lesson.
It is nice to have a whole curriculum. I really liked the History lessons. They were simple and easy to use. Some of the other subjects may be a little hard if your second grader is not a great reader but most students should have no problems.
