Fifth Grade Core Bundle: $125.00 HERE
Fifth Grade Curriculum Package: $250.00 HERE

These NEW Living Lesson Packages include everything that is in our Earthschooling Curriculum Packages but they go above and beyond by also providing you with Living Lessons. Living Lessons are video lessons where a teacher leads the class through a variety of main lessons, specialized lessons, stories, handwork, crafts, painting, form drawing, music, and more! You can use these lessons as examples to follow for your own teaching or can use them as supplements to your own teaching (we all need a break now and then. I would have loved to have these available on days I was ill or was taking care of my fussy baby). See free samples and full description below…

Description

Living Lessons included in this Fifth Grade Package

This collection is always growing! When you make your payment you are only paying for the Living Lessons and curriculum listed below. This means that the price may increase for this listing as we add more lessons. However, once you make your purchase you automatically receive access to all the lessons listed below and all the future lessons as well! Once you enroll you retain access to the Fifth Grade Living Lessons for life and will never pay for future Fifth Grade Living Lessons not currently listed on this page.

Important Note

The list below is not complete as we are adding new lessons every week! When you sign up you will receive all the current and future lessons for this set! Your main lesson teacher will be Mr. Andrea. You can read more about him here:

Already Included…

Already included in this package are all the same benefits you receive with our traditional Earthschooling Curriculum Package below..

Theme: Who am I? Coming into Oneself. Cultivate Awareness of the Macrocosm of World History and How it Compares to the Microcosm of Child’s Development.

Fifth graders begin to come to grips with the history of humanity with the study of ancient cultures from India, Persia, Egypt and Greece. Fifth graders connect history lessons with their growing athletic prowess in a Greek-style Olympics in the spring. In geography they expand out to the United States and North America. In science they study plant life with botany. The math curriculum now includes decimals, percentages, and practical business math skills, as well as the introduction of geometry. Music, handwork and foreign language study become increasingly challenging.

The study of history brings the child into him or herself by beginning in ancient times and working up to the present day. Geography brings the child into the world by starting locally and expanding to the whole planet.

All of your curriculum materials including mp3s and video tutorials are available through a teacher portal immediately after you make your purchase. You can read more about how this works here.
