Welcome to Third Grade! There is never a dull moment in Third Grade. Whether students are sharing about their tarantula projects, making volcanoes erupt, visiting California Missions, making solar ovens, or dressing up to present a book report, Third Graders are actively engaged in learning! Third Grade is the year for California History, an introduction to Earth Science, Native American history, a study of immigration, decimals, Scandinavia, and the first time for independent Science Fair projects! Many novels the students read are tied to California History and the year culminates in a trip to Sacramento.
