Third grade will alternate units in Science and Social Studies. Each unit will take approximately 2-3 weeks to complete. A variety of assessment methods including quizzes, tests, project-based learning, and informal teacher observation will be used to evaluate student learning. Test dates and study guides will be provided well in advance of our unit tests.
This week we continue our unit of study on people in communities. We are learning that communities in our country are made up of people from any cultural backgrounds. We are learning why people move from place to place and how communities are affected by these movements. People express and share their culture with others in a variety of ways and enrich the communities in which they live. Students are learning about different cultures in our country as well as the cultural influences in their community.
- What different cultures can be found in the United States?
- What makes up our American culture?
- How do people express their culture?
- How are customs different around the world?
