3rd Grade Science Curriculum

3rd Grade Science Curriculum

In this Grade, we will teach students how to observe events and phenomena and investigate the cause with an experiment. Let’s Read English provides virtual labs for the experiments. We’ll teach our students new science concepts and also simplify complex studies for them. To make it easier for them to understand, we will refer to the relevant topics they learned the previous year. We will recall the concepts they learned in physical science, life science, space, and the Earth.

This page gives you all the necessary information on the course, the topics covered in it, and why Let’s Read English’s curriculum is your best choice.

What Is Taught in Science in 3rd Grade?

Let’s Read English teaches students about ecosystems, magnetism, static electricity, and other scientific concepts. As we take them into the deeper world of science, we also help them develop their vocabulary of scientific terminologies.

We will also guide them on how to think like a scientist and also ask scientific questions. They’ll learn how to develop simple hypothesis from simple observations and then follow it up with an experiment to confirm their theories.

We understand that science standards vary slightly from one state to the other but be sure that Let’s Read English’s science curriculum meets the criteria in most states. Some of the topics in our 3rd-grade science course are:

  • Introduction to motion, friction, and gravity
  • Adaptations, the balance of nature, ecosystems, food chains, and the other aspects of ecology
  • Magnetism and electricity
  • Sound, light, heat, and other forms of energy
  • Climate and weather
