This 3rd Grade curriculum marks the beginning of a new kind of Sonlight program. For the first time, History, Geography, Read-Alouds and Readers as well as Language Arts are all linked together. The characters you meet in your history book will show up in the readers. As your children learn and discover in this style, they'll make astonishing connections between the people, places and events in American History.
Bring life to your American heritage. Ask questions such as: What makes this nation different? How did it come to exist? Why don't we have a king? Who lived in North America before Christopher Columbus came? Why did settlers risk everything to start over in the New World? Even if you're not from the U.S., learn valuable context for the world as it is today. See firsthand how the first modern democratic republic began. Discover how Americans fostered personal freedom and the spirit of innovation that so many countries emulate today.
Learn about the social forces and cultural influences that have made Americans the unique people they are. Learn how necessity drove early settlers to innovate and to leave behind certain European conventions. Also discover the civilizations lived here before Europeans arrived. In third grade, we shy away from discussing too many harsh realities of our early history. We touch on struggles between American Indians and settlers and the sad realities of racial conflicts, but don't dwell on them. Instead, we focus on the hard-working, vibrant spirit that helped families of settlers, immigrants, pioneers and pilgrims overcome big obstacles.
Get everything you need for third grade, including options for science, math, handwriting and spelling.
