This project took a typical third grade curriculum that would usually be taught by using basal readers and other types of text books and evolved it into a curriculum that is more student orientated where the students can learn through meaningful activities that are orientated to a hands on approach. This project took the best parts of the basal readers and used them in association with trade books, creative assignments, creative writing assignments, and hands on activities to help enlarge the students perspective and opportunities for learning. The project used the State of Illinois objectives for a third grade classroom to ensure that all subject and content areas were met.
