4th Grade

4th grade is similar to 3rd with the exception of our Math studies. In 4th grade, we start our transition into Saxon Math beginning with Math 5/4. In science, we rotate through the topics of biology, zoology, astronomy and botany – covering one topic per year. Some of our children study biology early, while others get it later on depending where we are when they join in. World History is the same, we use a “four year plan” so that everyone is able to study each of the different topics while still allowing for group lessons.

These are books and products we have used in our home at this age.
