Making sure your third grader accomplishes their learning objectives for science is a must, otherwise, learning more complex concepts in the upcoming years will only prove difficult. Since homeschooling laws vary based on where you live, be sure to find out what your state’s homeschool requirements are when it comes to third grade science.
Typically, you’ll find that science objectives for third grade include the following:
- Makes inferences about their observations, collects data and records information
- Understands life cycles of both plants and animals
- Knows the different processes (weathering, erosion) that shape Earth’s features
- Understands how different organisms interact with their environment
