I am so glad that you are interested in Morning Star for your child- here is what 3rd grade looks like…

The driving question for the MSCS third grade class is:

How could we design a plane for Amelia Earhart that would glide to land after running out of gas?

Our students are to exploring the science of flight, force and motion. They are developing teamwork, identifying their relative location in the world, and examining the history of flight beginning with the Wright Brothers. We will also be hosting a local COCC Aviation instructor to the classroom to discuss modern flight and pilot training, as well taking a field trip to the Bend Municipal Airport.

Follow us on our journey as we learn about flight!

  • In 3rd grade, we do integrated units with a science lens. This means that we start with the 3rd grade science standards, and build out our units accordingly. We fold in language arts, writing, reading, and art into the science units, and in the afternoon, take everything we have learned and apply it to a project. Units can be anywhere from 4-6 weeks long, providing your child with a rich opportunity to learn in depth about our subject.

In Christ,

3rd Grade Team
