A Virtual Lesson for 3rd Grade!

Spiders and pumpkins and bats! Oh, my! Join your classroom with the MSIC online via Adobe Connect and experience our virtual lesson for third graders where we use SOL-based hands-on activities that capture your students’ imagination. We’ll take you step-by-step through a one-hour virtual lesson that focuses on scientific investigation, unique physical adaptations of bats and spiders, along with spider webs and food webs, and don’t forget the pumpkins! We will explore plant life cycles and seed dispersal too. A class that creeps and crawls and, in the end, grows on you!

Scientific Investigation; Life Processes; Earth Patterns, Cycles, and Change; Living Systems;

Classroom lessons are free of charge to teachers in our consortium* and are scheduled through the designated MSiC Representative at each school.
