    Fifth grade covers the states in the context of the area they inhabit. For instance, students will study all of the New England States . . . then the Midwest . . . Great Plains . . . major rivers . . . etc.

    Some people like to "teach" each state's bird, flower, flag, major exports, etc., taking one state a week or on a similar schedule. I used to do that, but my goal is to teach in a way that my kids will retain the information, instead of just "learn" it long enough to pass a quiz. I found that material presented that way didn't stick the way I wanted it to. If you do want to do the state-by-state drill, this type of thing is available for free all over the Internet.

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!
