Welcome to Homeschooling Third Grade Science! My goal is to guide you step-by-step through the process of learning to use the free, high-quality science curriculum from Core Knowledge to homeschool your student.
What Will Your Student Learn in Third Grade? Your student will learn about classification of animals, the major systems of the human body, light and optics, sound, ecology, and astronomy. They will also be introduced to famous scientists including Alexander Graham Bell, Copernicus, Mae Jemison, and John Muir.
