The History and Social Science curriculum throughout elementary school is designed to provide a foundation in the four main strands of our discipline: history, civics, geography, and economics. The Virginia Standards of Learning are available at each grade, kindergarten through fourth grade (Virginia Studies). The fifth grade U.S. geography curriculum is one designed in Hanover and builds specific geographic background knowledge and skills needed in middle school.
If you are interested in learning more about the specific units of study at each grade level and ways you can get involved with the curriculum to support your student, please select a grade level on the left.
We hope you find these resources useful and wish you the best on your journey through time and place.
