Third Grade Culture Unit

Third graders at Benton Heights completed their culture unit and informance which integrated reading, social studies, dance, music, art, and drama. Each third grade classroom focused on a different ethnic group found in Union County: Native American, German, Irish, African, Hispanic, and Asian. Students then studied important aspects of that culture and what food, art, and traditions they valued. 

The students worked with their classroom teacher and the essentials team to create and perform a song, dance, or skit related to the culture they focused on. The students had a great time performing for their families!
