Product Description

What does your third grader need to learn in order for him/her to have a good education? Perfect for homeschoolers who enjoy the freedom to learn in whatever non-grade-segregated manner works best for them, the Core Knowledge Series isn't designed as a rigid comprehensive prescription, but as a way to provide a solid, common ground of knowledge that most students should have by the time they reach each grade.

Short, yet detailed sections are divided into general categories of language & literature, history & geography, visual arts, music, mathematics, and science. Sub-categories include many subjects that comprise the basic knowledge that a 3rd-grade child should know. Clearly written, each topic is approximately a page in length and conveys interesting and challenging content. From mythology and writing letters to the English colonies, division, and ecology, your third grader will receive a thorough sweep of knowledge critical for further success. 366 pages, softcover, indexed.

This revised edition includes new detail in stories, a more engaging emphasis on the story to be found within history, and additional color reproductions in the Visual Arts section.
