Welcome to third grade social studies!! Please note that we will be alternating social studies and science this year. We will be having a unit test at the end of each unit. Some units however may overlap.
Homework: Generally no homework will be assigned. There may be an occasional project and the students will know well in advance of such project(s).
There are occasional "study guides" that will be sent home but not all units have study guides. Please save all class worksheets to use as study guides as well. Students may take notes from time to time and those notes can be used to help study for tests.
Grading: All grades will be entered in our online grading system but please be patient because is can take a couple of days to enter grades.
unit projects 25%
worksheet /question sheets 30%
