In 5th Grade Social Studies, homeschoolers will begin to develop cultural awareness for the world around them.  Beginning in United States, we will study specific regions of the country, visiting the bustling streets of the Big Apple, the quaint farms of the midwest, the sunny beaches of California, and the genteel South.  Homeschoolers will then expand our explorations across the seas, climbing steep peaks and plumbing great depths.  Covering all the continents, homeschool students will visit several wonders of human civilization and nature.  This eye-opening journey will be brought to life in video, audio, and interactive, hands-on online presentations.
