Product Description
This Grade 3 Social Studies teaching resource offers an in-depth coverage of all the indicators for the outcome IN3.1 – Analyze life in a diversity of communities and IN3.2: Analyze the cultures and traditions in communities studied

Although it has been written to meet the outcome and indicators for the Saskatchewan Social Studies curriculum, it will meet the needs of educators teaching students about life in different communities of the world.

Lessons are presented in the order of the indicators:


a. Describe characteristics of daily life in communities studied and compare the ways in which needs are met by individuals in diverse communities (housing, tools, work, use of the land, games, education)

b. Give examples of how culture is reflected in daily life in various communities and examine why these cultural elements are important (religious traditions, recreation, art, architecture, clothing)

c. Compare life of a child in the local community to the life of a child in one of the communities studied (family, housing, education, recreation)


a. Hypothesize about the interaction students may have wit people and communities elsewhere in the world

b. Give examples of traditions and practices that have endured over time in communities studied and discuss why these are important

c. Make inferences about how the culture of the local communities reflected by its customs and traditions
