Building Real-Life Skills
Calvert's Sixth Grade Homeschool Curriculum will expand your child’s knowledge of classic American literature to include Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, and Langston Hughes, among others. Calvert’s Sixth Grade Grammar course also teaches sentence diagramming, unique among contemporary educators. The Spelling unit includes many cross-curriculum words from other subjects and integrates with phonics instruction.
Explorations in World History
In History, your child explores the birth of Western Civilization from the dawn of man through the fall of Rome. In Geography, your child will travel to Asia, Africa, Australia, and Antarctica.
Calvert is now offering two choices for Math: In our classic Calvert Math, students learn to represent fractions, mixed numbers, and decimals on number lines. In Math in Focus, students multiply and divide with decimals and use dot plots and histograms to organize and interpret data.
Teaching Real-world Uses of Technology
Technology lessons cover operation systems, URLs, Web searches, and presentation software.
In Science, students study earth science, the environment, weather and climate, and chemical properties and interactions.
Hands-on Art Lessons
The second volume of A Child’s History of Art: Sculpture offers hands-on art lessons coordinated with art history study.
