Grade 3 Resources
Grade 3 students continue their study of actions and practices that contribute to peace and order. Students investigate the responsibilities of varying levels of government and the scope of influence of their decisions. Students extend their use of maps and globes to represent the Earth and consider why people choose to live and settle where they do. Students begin to learn about the relationship between beliefs, rights, and responsibilities. They explore how history can impact present events and further examine how different points of view can lead to different interpretations of the same event. Students consider the impact of culture and diversity on interpretation of current events.
To see how the resources fit together, check out the Concentus Continuum of Study PDF.

The Essential Citizenship Competencies (ECCs) provide a framework to explore questions of citizenship. The ECC Wrap is a thinking strategy that presents questions to support reading, thinking, and learning about a text, an experience, or an issue using a structured process. Students are invited to place the situation or issue in the centre and wrap it in ECC questions. As they collaborate to answer these questions, teachers have seen student understanding slowly and steadily broaden and deepen. These questions can be included in your planning, learning, and assessment to deepen students’ justice orientation. Use the suggested grade level option that works best for your students.
