In third grade, the formal study of states and capitals begins. By year’s end, students will be able to map half of the United States, spelling the names of the states correctly and matching the capitals. States are introduced regionally, and students study attributes and fun facts about each state, providing cultural literacy.
The study of history is quite an endeavor; therefore, we divide the study into three sections. With Christian Studies, we look at Creation through prophetic times to come, highlighting our Christian heritage. With Classical Studies, we introduce two major empires with a focus upon Greece and Rome. In third and fourth grade, we are looking at our most recent history, the history of America. Students begin independently reading historical literature including biographies and fiction. Students practice review of the United States presidents as well.
