I am excited to be back and I am enjoying getting to know the third grade students! We are in the middle of our Earth science unit in which we are learning about rocks, soil, and earth's resources. The students have already learned about minerals and rocks, the rock cycle, and the three types of rocks. They have also learned about the components of soil and different types of soil. Throughout the next few weeks the students will be learning about ways to conserve soil as well as renewable and nonrenewable energy resources. The students will take their unit test in the beginning of November.
