CHC's curriculum for Fifth Grade distinguishes between core and elective subjects. Core subjects are the "basic essentials" of education for a particular grade, such as reading, science, and religion. Electives, such as art and map skills, can be added as time, interest, and finances allow. Visit the Fifth Grade Interactive Guide to take a subject-by-subject tour of core and elective materials, including printable sample pages that can be used to determine grade placement!
The Fifth Grade Core Kit includes all the core materials for Fifth Grade except for math and the books studied in The Treasure Trove of Literature, which can be purchased more affordably from other sources.
