social studies- Cultural Universals of Scarsdale (Class Zoom Lesson @ 10:00)

Our next social studies unit will be about the Cultural Universals. What that means is that all cultures, within a country and around the world, share certain ideas and ways of life. We may all have different types of dance, but we all dance. We may all have different ways of dressing, but we all wear clothes!

The third grade team invites you think about your life in Scarsdale. What is the culture of Scarsdale? What are the ways you get from place to place, what does your family value, do you celebrate any specific holidays? Some answers you will be able to find on your own, others you will need to ask your family and some you may need to use the internet to research. Good luck!

The Google Slides called, Cultural Universals Project, has been placed in your Social Studies folder for you already. Feel free to fill it out directly on the slides or print it out to hand write the information.

Friday, March 20th E- Learning

Today, is Seesaw Friday! Today’s activities allow you some time to record your thinking both in writing and through your voice. I can’t wait to hear your thinking through your own voices.

Make sure you consult the Heathcote Gateway to ensure you are logging into Seesaw correctly. Mr. Casal has created a tutorial that will answer all your questions. You can use a computer or an iPad to use Seesaw.

Any questions? Post them here: E-Learning Questions

Make sure you are still keeping up your reading stamina and volume. Want to discover new non-fiction books? TrueFlix. (Username: hcote Password: flix)

Ela-Book reviews

I am sure you have been reading up a storm these past few weeks. Today I want you to pick one of the best books you have read recently and think about giving it a review. A book review helps other readers decide if they want to read the book as well. Once we have everyone’s reviews we will have an amazing list to look at when we need help choosing a book.

Use this template before you record in Seesaw to brainstorm your review. Book Review Brainstorm

This is the background you will see when you record your review in Seesaw.


Once you have your review written, record your ideas by using your voice on the Seesaw activity I have assigned to you called, Book Review. Don’t forget to take a picture of the cover! Or even draw a picture of the cover and take a picture of your creation!

Math- draw your own area

In Seesaw you will see an activity called, Measuring Area. You will have to create three shapes all with the same area. Please explain in your recording how you found the area. Try to push yourself to think in terms of an array, like 2 sq. units  x 4 sq. units = 8 sq. units, instead of just counting the squares.

Follow the directions in Seesaw. Don’t forget to press the check mark when you are done to submit your answer.

Deep Breath

Believe in Yourself

Take a little time to unwind. Maybe in between activities or to start your day. Put on some music and pretend we are in class together working on our mandalas/coloring to refocus. Feel free to take a picture of any of your finished pieces and put them on your E-Learning Slideshow.
