Third Grade: Communities

 Communities  In third grade, students continue to focus on elements of culture both here and around the world.  Students continue to learn about government and democratic principles such as, individual rights and responsibilities, patriotism, common good, justice and equality.  Through these understandings, students expand their knowledge of how government works and how citizens participate in a democracy. Students also learn about the benefits of living in a diverse community and the commonalities and differences of communities and cultures around the world using non-fiction text and classroom discussions. Students continue to develop geographic awareness and identify, locate, and compare places around the world using geographic characteristics. Students expand their understanding of economic concepts by learning about the production and consumption of goods and services. They also learn about how some services are provided by the government and are paid for by the people through taxes. Students examine primary and secondary sources to learn about how people lived in the past.
