Summary of Arjun’s 3rd Grade

Arjun has completed 3rd grade of our homeschool adventure. He has come a long way in all respects and we are so proud of him. He has become more organized and neat than ever before. He has become more conscientious of his workload and doesn’t need to be coaxed to get it done. However, I would love for him to develop the focus to do his best effort rather than just getting it done to cut it off the list of things to do. His personality has definitely blossomed for the better and yet, I would love for him to focus on controlling his anger and minding his tongue. Here’s a summary of all that we have achieved.

Features of The Ocean Floor & Wave Viewer

Arjun and I studied the features of ocean floor such as continental shelf, rift valley, oceanic ridge, etc.  So he made a model to test his knowledge after studying.

We also learnt about waves. So, Arjun made a wave viewer to show the current of the wave at its crest and trough.
