A shift takes place in third grade Social Studies as students begin a more intense focus on History. Using Mind Missions, third graders are able to interact with history through engaging and meaningful experiences.
In Texas, state history is an educational rite of passage that will take your child on an historical adventure across the diverse regions of the Lone Star State. A highlight of third grade Social Studies—and a favorite day in the life of ROBS students—is Famous Texan Day. After careful investigation (and changing their minds a few times), students choose a character as the subject of in-depth research. The culminating project includes an opinion piece on why they chose their character and a playful exploration through a board game based on the life of their research subject. It is exuberant, memorable learning at its best.
