GRADE THREE SOCIAL STUDIES – C3
In grade three, students explore the concepts of a community and what maes a community unique. District 103, in partnership with neighboring districts, has begun the revision of the Social Studies curriculum which currently reflects the Illinois Social Studies Standards. The revision process is being guided by the newly issued College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework, and is supported by the Illinois State Board of Education.

Our Local Community
In the unit, students learn about their local communities. As historians, they research the history of their school and the local community and sequence important historical events on a timeline.
In this unit, students learn how people, history, and geography shaped Chicago. For the culminating experience, students participate in a simulation of the Chicago Columbian Exposition.
The above units were selected and created by District 103 teaching staff.
