Phil-Mont 3rd Grade


3rd grade

In third grade we see even more clearly that God is sovereign over all, including history, language, mathematics and nature. We evaluate characters’ actions in stories and literature from a Christian perspective. We see how Egypt’s civilization intimately connects to the history of Israel. We see that God reveals himself in history through specific people, places and events.
