Natural Resources for Grade 3 is a "hands-on" environmental activities unit designed for teachers to use with their students. Activities are chosen from natural resource programs such as Project Learning Tree, Project WILD, Aquatic Wild, and Project WET. The activities address natural resource themes and meet the Virginia Standards of Learning for Grade 3. The 30 lessons contained within cover a number of topics including the water cycle, survival of species, sources of energy, the life cycle of a tree, plant and animal diversity, food chains, and animal adaptations. The lessons are interdisciplinary in their approach, meeting objectives from science, mathematics, oral language, reading, literature, writing, and research skills. (DDR)
