Category Description for What Your _______ Graders Needs to Know:

Designed for use as a supplement to a basal curriculum, E. D. Hirsch's series adds historical and literary study (such as would be found in a classical curriculum) to the typical school curriculum. These guides cover things such as Language Arts, World history and geography, American history and geography, Visual Arts, Mathematics, Life and Physical Sciences. The selections are interesting and the format makes these books easy to use. There are also sections for the parent introducing each subject area and providing helpful information on using the selections. Many of the topics could form the basis for interesting unit studies. While you will need to use something more for a complete curriculum (additional math lessons or program, spelling, handwriting), these books should go a long way in extending your teaching to include a more "classical" component. Or consider using them as originally intended - spending the suggested 15 minutes per day going through them with your children as an interesting cultural extension for school. Paperback.

Our Favorite Supplemental Reference Book for School-aged Children and/or Those Who Teach Them
Whether a parent or grandparent, this series of resources is worth obtaining. It has been a wonderful supplement to our educational journey (covering the whole scope of basic knowledge.) My children pick up the Core Knowledge Series voluntarily. This purchase was made because recommendation was made through Hillsdale College’s Online Proper K-12 Classical Education course.

I give a four rating for these reasons:
(1) Preference of a hardcover copy to this softcover book
(2) Although briefly, scientifically accurate, and in good order within the book, note that the 5th Grade book covers (lastly) the Human Reproductive System; which may be too soon for some families.
Also note, There is no specific mention of God’s design, but the precise wording and variation in nature implies magnificent design.
