Third Grade Science

3rdgradescience.JPGThe science units in the third grade include Habitats, Plant Growth and Development, and Rocks and Minerals. Descriptions of each unit are provided below:

Students investigate the needs of living things and how a habitat meets these needs. Students examine differences in physical features of habitats and consider how organisms adapt to survive.

Plant Growth and Development
Students plant and observe the growth of Wisconsin Fast Plants from seed to flower to seed. They also learn about bees and pollination.

Rocks and Minerals
Students explore simulated and real rocks and investigate the properties of and test minerals as a geologist would. They create their own guidebooks and use information to identify mystery minerals.
