3rd Grade Social Studies

Course Description

This year students will learn new concepts through hands on activities and common core standards.
The theme for third grade is:  Communities - Past and Present, Near and Far
The local community serves as the focal point for third grade as students begin to understand how their communities have changed over time and to make comparisons with communities in other places. The study of local history comes alive through the use of artifacts and documents. They also learn how communities are governed and how the local economy is organized.
