By now your child will have a fully integrated complete curriculum containing all subjects. Fifth Graders learn the connections between American history, literature, and geography by reading classic historical novels such as Sing Down the Moon and The Sign of the Beaver.

Essential writing skills continue to be developed, including paragraphing, outlining, and summarizing. Your child will write original reports, stories, and essays using the lessons about sentence types in our grammar unit.

Fifth Grade Math emphasizes problem-solving steps. Math covers multiplication up to three digits, geometry, multiplying and dividing fractions, and introduces integers.

Technology instruction includes research skills and basic HTML. In science, your child will study plants, weather, climates, and ecosystems. The geography unit focuses on regions of the United States.

Most exciting and unique to Calvert is our inclusion of art history in the Fifth Grade curriculum. Your child’s classical education will include picture study and A Child’s History of Art: Painting, another text written by Virgil Hillyer.
