↓What will your child LEARN
In accordance with Alberta Education standards of 3rd grade science course covers many types of science including physical science, biology, and earth science. The students start by reviewing the parts of plants and how they grow and change. Then they learn some new information about cells, how materials move through plants, and how plants reproduce. The students then move onto studying animals, including how they are grouped, how they use life-supporting substances, and how animals grow and change. The students learn about their senses and how their eyes, ears, nose, and taste buds work. Students will then learn about ecosystems; what they are, how they function, and how to protect them. Next the students expand on previous knowledge gained about how the Earth’s surface changes and the major parts of our solar system. They are introduced to new information about comets, asteroids, meteoroids, and the contributions of Galileo Galilei to astronomy. The students will then explore different types of energy such as light, sound, heat, and electricity.
They’ll learn problem-solve and build structures, using various materials they have tested for strength and stability. The students will also use simple tests and tools to describe and classify rocks and minerals based on characteristics like colour and hardness. Finally, the students learn about the scientific method and use their knowledge to design and conduct an experiment.
