Homeschoolers will shift their focus from American shores in third grade with Social Studies 3.  We will traverse the harsh tundra of Siberia, dance the rumba in tropical Brazil, stand in awe of the magnificent castles in Ireland, rest our feet in a Japanese tea house, and hop along with the kangaroos in the land down under, Australia!  Homeschool students will gain an appreciation for the rich diversity across the globe.  By exploring dozens of countries, students will gain a fundamental understanding of the geographical makeup of our globe.
