I am observing in a third grade classroom this semester and I wanted to learn more about what third grade science was. One of the first websites I found was under the Mohonasen School District in Schenectady, NY. The first part of this section on the website was a quiz for students to get an understanding of what they know and do not know about what they are going to learn in third grade. I found this great because it allows not only teachers to get a better understanding of what they need to review but gives the parents an idea of what their child knows. Then following the quiz there are different units the students will be learning about. Under each unit gives a description of what exactly they will be learning and additional websites for more information. Overall, this whole website is a great tool for any teacher that does not fully understand what exactly is to be taught in third grade or if someone needs a refesher.
