Overview 3-5

Original Publication Date:

Children in Grades 3-5 are at a wonderful stage in their education. Now able to read and write independently, they are fearless. The materials here rely on this boldness and willingness to take risks and engage with the world around them. They are able to integrate ideas and information in creative and ambitious ways. Here you will find activities, lesson plans, and curriculum units that integrate geography and math, Language Arts and Social Studies. They draw on children’s curiosity about their world and increasing self-awareness. Watch them explore their world—from the classroom to the universe!!
