Chapter 4: Government
I wanted to answer some questions I have been receiving about Science. Third graders do not have very many Science standards. We only have two units of study left in Science (Simple Machines and Rock and Minerals). We are waiting until the Spring to finish those standards. In addition to the Science book, it will include a project and a field trip. I hope this information is helpful to you.
