Rethinking Science in 3rd Grade

by Randy Ziegenfuss

Third grade teachers at Harry S Truman Elementary School have been working this year to restructure the science curriculum, using standards as a guide to create new lessons involving technology, hands on activities, and projects. The students planted seeds, created flip-books with diagrams, completed animal research within a WebQuest, viewed the effects of a homemade glacier, explored different kinds of soil, interacted with weather websites, and even explored the phases of the moon with a website and YouTube songs.
