Third Grade

Girl jumping in excitement

Our Third Grade curriculum ties into the Social Studies theme of "Communities, Near & Far."  By the end of the lessons, they should be able to explain how income is taxed and how local governments provide goods and services, describe the important role banks play in an economy, and be introduced to the concept of borrowing.  By teaching this unit, all Financial Literacy and Economics standards are met, coupled with many of the inquiry standards as well.
