Connecticut Core Standards
CT.SS.3. CONNECTICUT AND LOCAL HISTORY
3.2. DIMENSION 2: APPLYING DISCIPLINARY CONCEPTS AND TOOLS - In Grade 3, the focus is on the disciplinary concepts and skills students need to understand and apply as they study Connecticut and local history. In third grade, history is supported through an interdisciplinary approach that includes civics, economics, and geography. These interdisciplinary ideas are the lenses students use in their inquiries, and the consistent and coherent application of these lenses in Grade 3 should lead to deep and enduring understanding (C3, p. 29).
