This week, I am going to do some serious planning for our next homeschool year. Emily will be in the fifth grade. Our focus for the year will be world geography and cultures. This will be primarily a social studies focus, but I plan to include art, writing, and science as much as possible. My plan for this is to inventory all the resources we already have and to organize them into a coherent schedule. I did Sonlight 5th year with my older kids many years ago, so I have many of those resources to include. I have several Currclick books and studies about different continents.
I’d love to hear about any other world geography resources that you think are great and that I should take a look at.
Some of the other resources for other subjects that we will use are:
Math: Singapore Primary Math 5
Bible: Finish NT Grapevine Study
Language Arts: Word Roots (Critical Thinking Press)
Igniting Your Writing (currclick)
Science: Nutrition 101
TOPS Electricity and Magnetism
Other: Building Thinking Skills (Critical Thinking Press)
I’ve linked to the items that I reviewed last year for the TOS Crew and that we are continuing to use as a significant part of our curriculum.
