3rd graders create regions of South Carolina

Third Grade Social Studies

Students in third grade were studying about the world around them, beginning with the regions of South Carolina. After learning about the characterisitcs of different regions in South Carolina, students participated in a hands on activity by creating the regions with different colored beans. Students had to create a key to match their regions maps and be able to give detailed reasons why they choose particular beans to represent each region. Students projects are displayed in the hallway to share their learning with others.
