The grade threes began their morning with a school assembly. After assembly the students had their spelling pre-test and put their words in their planners. As assembly was quite long today they only had a minimal amount of time to work on their spelling sentences. wpid-wp-1485195195526.jpg After recess the students had a socials lesson on natural resources. We discussed what natural resources are and why they are important. We then read about some of the natural resources found in BC. Students then worked independently on a natural resources circle. They used what they knew, learned and read in the textbook to think of as many natural resources and products we get from them. The class then compared with a partner and then shared as a class.
