Grade 3 Overview
The challenging and practical tasks of the curriculum encourage new skills and awareness through observation, precision, imagination, and creativity. Classic children’s literature forms the foundation of a rich and effective Language Arts program that develops essential grammar and composition skills. A new interest in careful work is encouraged through the introduction of cursive handwriting and basic spelling rules.
In Social Studies, students develop a deeper understanding of history by reading about the legends, laws, and government of ancient cultures. While learning about these cultures, beliefs, and perspectives, students also learn about different world religions as these were essential elements of ancient cultures. For instance, students learn about the religious beliefs of Native Americans, ancient Hebrews, Phoenicians, Kush, Egyptians, and more. This is done through a sociological and historical perspective. Geography is explored as students investigate and map their own cultural heritage.
The Grade 3 Math curriculum focuses on multiplication tables, place value to the millions, and counting with money while also learning how to carry and borrow, add and subtract three-digit numbers and solve division problems with remainders.
In Science, students observe weather patterns, interdependence in nature, local trees, and the changing of the seasons. Students are introduced to the scientific method through simple experiments that encourage careful observation and accurate reporting skills.
Art, Crafts, Music, and Health activities encourage students to explore through a variety of media including watercolor, clay, carpentry, cooking, and paper marbling. Students continue to develop their recorder playing skills, create their own book of music, and conduct inquiries into topics related to their healthy development.
