Education - Social Studies Resources (Elementary): Grade 3 - Connect with the World

Connect with the World - Topics

Overview

Grade 3 students will investigate life in four diverse communities around the world. The contemporary communities examined will be drawn from India, Tunisia, Ukraine and Peru. Students will inquire into how geographic, social, cultural and linguistic factors affect quality of life in communities in the world. Students will enrich their awareness and appreciation of how people live in other places. Their understanding of global citizenship will be further developed and they will recognize Canada’s involvement in other parts of the world. -- from Program of Studies, Alberta Education (p.1 in Grade 3)
