Deeply-Digital Curricula for 3rd Grade

For 3rd grade, we currently have curricula for ELA (aligned to MAISA), Social Studies (aligned to MAISA/MC3 and to GIANTS), Science (aligned to the NGSS, Next-Generation Science Standards), and Math (aligned to Eureka math/EngageNY).

We have also provided a sample lesson Roadmap for each of the curricula. Unit Roadmaps are “hierarchical” – and thus one Roadmap can expand and expand until the actual student lesson is reached. Note that the sample Roadmaps will open inside the Collabrify Roadmap Center. Thus, please make sure you have created an account for yourself at https://roadmap.center – please see the Need Help? tab for further assistance.
