Third graders grow in their natural curiosity, personal values, self-motivation and responsibility. Students build on basic skills to expand their intellectual abilities, becoming critical thinkers who question assumptions about the world. Each student develops confidence as a reader and an author. Generating ideas, drafting, revising, editing, publishing, and proofreading are central. Students develop skills in the basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Third graders study farming, Native American cultures, famous African Americans, andthe fifty states. Third graders meet for science in the lab, studying inventions, design and technology, and chemistry. The micro farm is a highlight for the children doing hands-on learning. The Storytelling Festival, the Famous African American Mock Wax Museum, and the Satae Float Parade are keenly anticipated annual events.
