    Grade 5 Curriculum Substitutions

    We had tremendous success with your Kindergarten package last year and so we will be "jumping in" to grade 5 with another child.

    We are way behind in geography though. Would you recommend using the Geography I from the Grade 4 curriculum or is it linked to the history lessons so I should use Geography II with the Men of the Middle Ages?

    Thanks!

    Hi, Karen.

    I would definitely start with Geography I because it is the geography of Europe, the Middle East, and No. Africa. That is the most relevant geography to the study of the classical world, and it is especially relevant to the Middle Ages.

    Regards,

        Agg! I bought Geo 2! Should I go back and order Geo 1 now? He has had a lot of ancient history work that included maps in the past.

          Good morning.

          If your student can already map Europe and the Middle East, you will be fine with Geography 2. We just recommend the first one because it helps students put the areas they are studying in classical history into context as far as location goes. Geo 2 is areas of the world that we don't hit too much in grammar school work, but students' knowledge of that part of the world is very helpful when they get to middle/high school studies. So either is fine!

          But if you want to exchange 2 for 1, that is no problem!

          Cheers,

          Tanya
