Lesson Plans

Bonnie Plants worked with a 3rd Grade Teacher to develop lesson plans appropriate for students in 3rd Grade classrooms across the country. These lesson plans take into consideration the teaching requirements for 3rd Grade teachers in subjects such as Math, Science, Health/Nutrition, and Social Studies. We hope you find these plans helpful and enjoy sharing the lessons with your students. Each lesson plan includes instructions for teachers and sample worksheets for students.
