4th Grade Solar System Unit

In the United States, most children enter the public school education system at age(s) 5–6 to start the First Grade. Children are divided into year groups or grades based on age; in Fourth Grade students are usually 9–10 years old and typically attending an Elementary or Primary School. Standard subjects include maths, sciences, English, grammar, writing, literature, and history (often including history of the founding of the United States, and that depending on which State the school is in may include Regional and local area history based on verified primary sources). Some other subjects taught may include garden skills, livestock care, environmental sustainability, home economics, music, nutrition. Most schools also offer health, music, art, and physical education.
