A shift toward explanatory/argumentative writing is marked by an increase in non-fiction reading. Students conduct research for an op-ed and then create an investigative journalism report for a news show.
Math dives deeper into addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers, fractions, data, and graphing; measuring angles and symmetry; and calculating perimeter and area of square and rectangles. Students build a travel itinerary, budget for a trip, and use geometry to design a dream neighborhood.
Students apply their knowledge of natural earth processes to generate and compare solutions to determine the impacts of renewable and nonrenewable resources. Students employ the engineering design process to design, test, and refine a device to stay safe during a collision.
This year’s focus is on the geography and history of early North America, the Age of Exploration, Colonial America, the American Revolution, and westward expansion up until the Civil War. Students create virtual museum exhibits to showcase the history of their state.
This course explores drawing skills such as perspective and color theory. Picture study includes the discussion and analysis of famous works of art.
Students learn age-appropriate motor, non-locomotor, and manipulative skills, and are required to participate in regular physical activity.
We used Calvert for 4th and 5th grade for our son and could not have been more pleased. All of the Lesson Manuals were extremely easy to follow and understand. Since it was our first time homeschooling, I was nervous that I would miss something or wouldn’t teach my son everything that he needed to know for those grades. Once I saw Calvert’s program, I knew that I didn’t have to worry.— Brodie G., Calvert Mom
