Election Day in 3rd Grade

November6

Happy Election Day!

We are currently studying government, so we had a big celebration today. We voted! We discussed the 3 candidates for NC Supreme Court, and voted for them.

Champions were very excited to participate.

We talked about the process, researched the candidates, and registered to vote. Then, students came to the ¨polls¨ and voted in voting booths.

It was amazing to see their excitement and engagement in this process!

Biltmore House

October8

We went to visit the Biltmore House! In 3rd grade, we study local North Carolina History. The Biltmore House is an exciting part of our history here in Asheville.

The Champions were super engaged during the house tour! They asked great questions.

We also saw the Chihuly exhibit in the gardens. It was beautiful! They have been studying Chihuly in art class.

Culture

October8

We have been doing some awesome things to explore our own culture, and the culture of others.

We studied different cultures, and completed projects on that culture over Fall Break. Today, we got to show off our hard work. The cultures we studies included: Japan, Italy, South Africa, Sweden, and Spain.

It was so exciting to see what champions decided to focus on and learn about on their own.

They did an amazing job!

Force and Motion!

March1

We did an experiment in which we tested out what would happen if you sent a car down a ramp with various things taped to the top.

Students predicted how far the object would go, and if it would go faster or slower than if it didn’t have anything on top.

We found out that if an object is heavier, it will go faster. This is due to Newton’s Second Law of Motion: The amount of acceleration that a force can produce depends on the mass of an object.

Everyone worked well on their teams, and it was a lot of fun!

Valentines Day Service

February13

We made crafts to bring to Brookdale Senior Living Center for Valentines Day!

Unfortunately, we did not get to go due to the flu outbreak.

However, it was a wonderful process (thanks to my room parents!) for the students to make something to give away to someone they have never even met for Valentines Day.

They were excited to share their craft.

History Unit

February13

In our current social studies unit, we are studying history of local communities- specifically Asheville and the surrounding area.

We have studied:

  • Smith- McDowell House
  • Biltmore Estate
  • Carl Sandburg (and his home in Flat Rock, NC)

It’s been a great unit. We are exploring the impact of important figures over the year in this area.

For the Smith McDowell House, we made timelines of important events through the years.

For the Biltmore Estate, we made brochures. They came our great!

For Carl Sandburg, we did a scavenger hunt to discover information about him. We will visit the Carl Sandburg home in May, so we are getting excited about that!
