3rd Grade Classes

United States of America
Each student in 3rd Grade will be learning about the 50 states of the United States.  They will each choose one state other than Florida and research information such as the climate, the capitol, and the population of the state.  We will also learn about different landmarks and popular places to go within the state and then they will plan a trip to that state.  In the planning part, they will determine where they will go and the things that they would do while they are there.  They will also understand how much money it would cost to go to do these things.

Once they have all of their information, they will make a website with the facts that they have learned and showcase and advertise their state so that others will want to go there.

The students will be using a Teams on Microsoft 365 to keep their information organized.  They will also be using websites and online resources, books, travel atlases and puzzles to understand the location and information being researched.
