Product Description

What does your fifth grader need to learn in order for him to have a good education? Perfect for homeschoolers who enjoy the freedom to learn in whatever non-grade-segregated manner works best for them, the Core Knowledge Series isn't designed as a rigid comprehensive prescription, but as a way to provide a solid, common ground of knowledge that most fifth graders should have.

Short, yet detailed sections are divided into general categories of language & literature, history & geography, visual arts, music, mathematics, and science. Sub-categories include many subjects that comprise the basic knowledge that a fifth-grade child should know. Clearly written, each topic is approximately a page in length and conveys interesting and challenging content. From Greek myths to Hull House, Napoleon to fractions, your fifth grader will receive a thorough sweep of knowledge critical for further success. 393 pages, softcover, indexed.

This updated edition includes new, vivid details in stories, an increased emphasis in history, and new color reproductions in the arts section.

Editorial Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE CORE KNOWLEDGE SERIES

“A new vision for the education of America is being tested in Florida—and it works.”
Life magazine

“I wanted to take a moment and thank you for the knowledge I am able to give my children through your series. They absorb the information like sponges and can’t get enough of it. It is clear to me that children have the capability to learn so much more than is expected of them in most schools!”
—A parent, Florida

“Core Knowledge has increased the enthusiasm and commitment of our teachers, and our rising standardized test scores show that the program is effective.”
—Gina M. McKinnon, PDC K-6,
Mystic Valley Regional Charter School, Malden, Massachusetts

“We credit Core Knowledge for the improved achievement levels of our socioeconomically disadvantaged students.”
