They will learn the recurring themes are apparent in sciences, math, and technology. Students will plan and safely implement classroom and outdoor investigations using scientific processes, In short, 3rd Grade Science will be fun and exciting learning about our world and universe.
Our Social Studies focus this year will be to study communities such as physical and human characteristics, how communities change over time, and historical figures. Students will also learn how communities work, the election process, the free enterprise system as well as choices that affect communities.
