Third Grade Intellectual Development

3 of 8

They work hard to complete challenging tasks.

As kids get smarter, they want tougher challenges. Most third graders are able to use logical reasoning and set up a system to complete a challenge. They take on projects like writing a book, organizing collections or using construction toys to build something extravagant.

What you should do: Encourage your child’s activities, whatever they are. Show them off to family members. Buy supplies for your child to use. If your child has challenging school projects, lend a helping hand, but don’t do all the work.
