Language Arts: 

We cover the following topics in our Reading Units of Study: Building a Reading Life,  Mystery Books, Reading to Learn, Character Studies, and Research Clubs. Students will read a variety of literature throughout the year. We cover the following topics in our Writing Units of Study: Crafting True Stories, Information Writing, Opinion Writing, and Fairy Tales. Students will be able to experiment with a variety of writing styles this year.    


The third grade Science curriculum at Littleton is focused particularly on Engineering, Earth and Space, Physical Science, and Life Science. Students will be able to participate in science labs and a variety of hands on activities throughout the year

Social Studies: 

In Social Studies, we focus on several different areas. These include studying government, citizenship, Early American people, and an emphasis on map and globe skills with particular attention to directions and the ability to locate specific places. We also focus on learning about the history, land forms, and counties in New Jersey. In addition we explore rural, urban, and suburban communities in depth.


We also have a comprehensive Health curriculum in third grade.  We learn about the three parts of Health:  Family/social, emotional, and physical; Our Body Systems; and Dental Health.
