Crocodile House - 3rd Grade

This week in class…

Math-In this unit, your child will build on earlier experiences and continue to partition shapes and recognize fractions as equal parts of a whole. Children are formally introduced to standard notation for fractions, and explore the relationship between the numerator and the denominator. They use fraction circle pieces to represent fractions of regions and to recognize equivalent fractions. Your child will also continue to develop multiplication strategies and work with properties of multiplication.


Social Studies- Students will conduct research on different California Native American tribes. In groups. Students will determine different characteristics (i.e., region/food; shelter/tools; clothing/jewelry) for their assigned tribe. Read about the different California Native American tribes at Celebration of Learning!


Science- Students will continue to learn about Native Americans and natural disasters. Students will be working in a group in a group to construct Native American homes.  Check students' binder reminder for upcoming quiz date. Check out the Native American homes at Celebration of Learning!
