Our third-grade students had an exciting week! We culminated this year’s studies of Pennsylvania with a trip to Harrisburg and an interactive government iPad game.
In Harrisburg, we visited our State Capital and learned more about the functions of our three branches of government. We also went to the State Museum of Pennsylvania. The State Museum helped tie together everything we have learned this year in Social Studies. We broke up into groups for an exciting scavenger hunt. The students explored products from PA, a painting of Penn’s Treaty, Pennsylvania’s wildlife and more!
On Thursday, Dr. Julie Oltman and Dr. Hammond created an amazing interactive government game on the iPad. In small groups, third graders traveled to different businesses in downtown Bethlehem and discovered whether those businesses provide a service, maintain order or protect your rights.
It was an amazing week that wrapped up a year full of learning and hard work! Well done third grade!
