    Default Considering using part of grade 5 and part of grade 6 social studies. Thoughts?

    I am considering using grade 5 chapters 12-15 and grade 6 chapters 12-17. These chapters cover geography, civics, and economics. Something like this:

    Semester 1
    Civics
    Grade 5- Chapter 14: Political Science
    Grade 6- Chapter 15: Political Science
    Grade 6- Chapter 16: U.S. Political System
    Economics
    Grade 5- Chapter 15: Economic System
    Grade 6- Chapter 17: Economic System

    Semester 2
    Geography
    Grade 6- Chapter 14: Maps/ Globes/ Geographic Tools
    Grade 5- Chapter 12: Geography of the United States
    Grade 5- Chapter 13: World Geography
    Grade 6- Chapter 12: Investigate Your State
    Grade 6- Chapter 13: Characteristics of Your State

    I think we will use three courses from The Great Courses that cover the Middle Ages for history, so this would keep T4L totally separate with no history.

    Thoughts?

    Mandy, I think it is an excellent idea to pull the political/economics/geography out of the two years and make a single course out of it. This allows concentration and will probably let your student go more in depth. l love that you thought outside the box! Any others doing something similar?
