Anna’s 5th Grade Homeschool Curriculum
Since we’re living overseas this fall, Anna’s 5th grade homeschool curriculum needed to be highly portable. For this reason, you’ll find more digital curricula than I typically use.
5th Grade Homeschool Art Curriculum
My kids really miss their friends back home, and they found a wonderful solution that combines friendship with schoolwork. They created an art club. Each week they vote on what they are going to use as their theme for the week. Then they draw, and share drawings over the internet.
Anna also uses Fimo clay a lot. She is primarily creating gifts with it, but it counts as art as well!
5th Grade Homeschool English CurriculumUSA – Get 50% OFF an annual subscription to Night Zookeeper.
Anna LOVES Night Zookeeper as her writing curriculum this year! It’s easy for me as it’s all online, and she gets feedback from live instructors. This has been a big curriculum win for us!
Anna also practices writing in her travel journal.
5th Grade Homeschool Curriculum: History
Most of Anna’s homeschool history curriculum right now is hands on! She’s visiting historic sites and museums all over Europe and learning through the exhibits.
If we were home I would probably sign her up for an Outschool class, alongside local museum and historical site visits.
5th Grade Math Curriculum
We LOVE Beast Academy elementary school math! Signing Anna up for level 5 Beast Academy was a no brainer for us. They have an online course, but we stuck with the books because I feel children retain more math when they write it out. The graphic novel style textbook is a big win. The math games sometimes do get more complex than my non math geek daughter loves, so we’ll skip those.
5th Grade Science Curriculum
I signed Anna up for Science Is Weird after Michelle at ResearchParent recommended it. It’s a fun curriculum! Definitely quirky, and might not fit every home. I think it’s a class best joined live, but since we are in the UK the times don’t work. Anna is sometimes reluctant to start the prerecorded sessions, but she always ends up enjoying them. She has a notebook full of notes, and she always has things to say about what she learned!
We will also spend time when we can at science museums, since I think those are great places to learn!

I’ve heard lots of good stuff about all of the materials you’re using.
I’m jealous of all the possibilities you have for history with that.
It’s an amazing way for the kids to study history!
