Third-Grade students also begin to learn about ancient mythology and art history, two subjects that prepare students for greater literature appreciation.
In math, your child will continue to build knowledge of multiplication and division, as well as learn new areas such as fractions, decimals, graphing, geometry, and word problems. Your child will apply mathematical processes and reasoning.
