WHAT IS A CULTURE?
Crosswalk to Grade 3 Content Understandings
This crosswalk identifies grade 3 content understandings that are addressed in Dr. Jervis's paper. The degree to which the content understandings are explored varies. Some are developed in considerable depth, while others are not addressed at all. Students must have access to instructional opportunities which address each of the grade 3 content understandings. Social Studies Instructional Strategies & Resources: Prekindergarten Through Grade 6 is part of the social studies toolkit which provides teachers guidance in planning for these opportunities.
