Third grade social studies cover a broad field in its curriculum. It spans the studies of ancient cultures up to the colonial history of North America: Geography, History, Civics, and Economics. Of course, the contents of this course are subsidized to make it easy for the children to understand. However, the topics have a lot of depths and are discussed in further detail in many books, not all books on the topic will be relevant to a third grader. We will give you some tips on how to start helping your child with their third-grade social studies homework.
Make a point to know which books are approved by the government to be used to teach third grade Social Studies. Find out whether the school’s library has enough of them. You could also invest in obtaining a personal copy for your child if they cannot fully utilize the school’s resources. The government approved books are written in a language the child can understand and follows the curriculum strictly. Parents can also read the books to help their children understand the concepts addressed and the language of third grade Social Studies.
You may allow your child monitored access to the internet or locate relevant information for them online. A quick internet search will reveal numerous websites designed to help a child understand their curriculum. Not only do they provide study notes, there are also quizzes to gauge the child’s understanding of the concepts discussed and can be used as a revision tool.
There are a lot of informative children’s shows on television. While there is no curriculum they follow, the topics are discussed in fun and easy to understand the way that will help the child even remember. Some are even available in DVD format for purchase so the child can simply watch the episodes that addressed a problematic topic or review past episodes during revision.
There are also computer programs that you may install on your computer to help the child in learning their Social Studies. The program will be loaded with the complete curriculum and even include a support feature where the student may ask questions if they do not understand. The program may require an internet connection, but ultimately the child benefits from well-researched content tailored for their young mind.
You may engage in skill activities with your child to help them develop crucial skills in Social Studies. Skills such as map reading and reading timelines in geography are applicable in later classes and life. It is important for the child to grasp them well. Make the skill activities a bit more fun than homework to keep the child’s enthusiasm and interest.
