In Third Grade Science, students will further explore the natural cycles that make up the world in which we live.  These cycles include geological phenomena, the stratification of soil, minerals, and rocks.  Homeschool students will learn about fascinating events such as volcanoes and geysers, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, and other natural disasters.  Homeschoolers will round out the year with an in-depth analysis of celestial bodies and how they move to maintain gravitational balance in the solar system and beyond.
