Fifth Grade Main Lesson: Geography
The fifth grader has enhanced his recent gains in consciousness and has grown more accustomed to being an isolated self and seeing the world in a new perspective. Geography emphasizes contrast. Every consideration of the earth's physical features is linked with a study of the way human life has been lived in the region, and the human uses of natural resources, the industry and produce.
Through lively descriptions, map-making projects, reading assignments and reports, students learn about physical, economic and cultural conditions of different areas. They grow to appreciate the diversity of human life upon the earth.
