The focus of social science in the third grade is history through the study of ancient civilizations (Greece, Rome, and Mali) and the early discoveries of the English, French and Spanish explorers. History in grade 3 will focus on the study of early civilization and how early contributions and advancements led to our present civilization. Geography and the Earth’s physical environments--how human activities help shape the Earth’s surface, human settlements and structures, and how human activities are influenced by the Earth’s physical features and processes--will also be studied.
