Grade 3 Mrs. Bracco and Mrs. White's Class




The third graders finished off their year by making a Salt Dough Relief Map of the 48 contiguous states of the U.S.A. Each student assembled their dough at home and then applied it to their map at school. We painted and labeled our own map as true cartographers. Thank you to Mrs. Sego, Mrs.vanThorre,and Mrs. Brunick for your assistance in making this all possible.

During our Classroom Olweus Meeting the students were introduced to the "Bullying Circle." This was an exercise to help students understand the various roles students may play in a bullying situation. Students were given a scenario and described the feelings and actions of their character in a bullying situation. This activity is designed to shift attitudes of students and help them become empowered to join the defenders of bullying.


















The water cycle was explored in Science. Students made a model and a poster about this important part of our world You can see more Pictures in our Gallery!









During our last Olweus classroom meeting, students discovered the ways we are alike. We found out many ways that we are the same but also the ways we are different.











Our 3rd grade scientists constructed an anemometer today in science class. Are you wondering what that might be? An anemometer is an instrument for measuring the speed of the wind. We even went outside to see how they worked.

Take a look in our Anemometer Gallery!
