Subject matter is more complex and students are exposed to new challenges and ideas including:

  • Literacy. Students learn literature and language arts and are involved in projects that involve listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
  • Enhanced math skills. Students go beyond the basics of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division and learn about absolute values, prime factorization, and expanded algebraic problems and geometry.
  • Introduction to applying the scientific process. Students learn ethics, safety techniques, experiments, and more and take more in-depth looks at scientific areas like the solar system, plants, and electricity.
  • Social studies. Students learn about early civilizations, how they were governed an what they contributed to human advancement.
