STEAM Studies 
This year the third grade will be exploring the STEAM fields: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics through research and hands-on activities.  We will take a look at one great achiever in each of these fields, and then, go in depth into their lives and their accomplishments.
Science: Sir Isaac Newton
Technology: Bill Gates
Engineering: Alexander Graham Bell

   Later in the year, we will become Package Engineers as we create a plant package using the engineering design process                         featured in A Gift From Fadil.
