Our goal of this series of lesson plans is to help the Marion County third grade teachers teach the Ohio Learning Standard for Social Studies theme- Communities: Past and Present, Near and Far while building community pride in our future leaders and citizens. It is a resource and supplement for the third-grade teachers.
We have worked with a local third grade teacher Shelley Pickens to create this plan. Shelley is a lifelong resident of Marion and classroom teacher for Marion City Schools, with 22 years of experience teaching elementary school students. We see the lessons as an idea springboard and creative addition for each teacher use.
The sections of the lesson plan are provided here as individual PDFs so that you may download as much or as little as you need.
