Spanish in Third Grade

In Third Grade, students continue to explore other cultures. We rely heavily on cross-curricular projects to deepen the knowledge on topics they started studying in previous years. We bring in other disciplines like science and math. Students start to perform skills in a more organic way, showing their advancement in their level of proficiency.
