We will be identifying a variety of strategies.  Students will use the relationship between multiplication and division to solve division problems.  Students will combine hundreds to make numbers above 1,000.  They will estimate problems with sums greater than 1,000.  Students will use story contexts and representations to support explanations.  Students will also write a story problem to represent an equation.


     Third graders will be starting a new unit of study called, Structures of Life. Students will investigate structures of organisms and learn how some of the structures function in growth and survival. Students will observe various organisms and explain how animals adapt to their environment. Throughout the unit, your child will develop an attitude of respect for living things and use the scientific thinking process to conduct investigations.
