Virginia Studies:
Virginia geography and history are the focuses for our social studies this year. We begin with the first inhabitants of Virginia and how they are intertwined with the geography of our state. After learning about our geography and Native Americans, we move on to the colonization of Virginia and the road to the American Revolution. Following the war, we learn about Virginia's role in forming the new nation of the United States of America and our country's westward expansion movement. The Civil War and Reconstruction follow, leading us up through present day and our systems of government.

Science:  
The science curriculum covers the solar system, weather, plants, electricity & magnetism, energy and force/motion. The fourth-grade standards stress the importance of using information, analyzing data, and validating experimental results. Defining variables in experimentation is emphasized, and making simple predictions from picture, bar, and basic line graphs is underscored. Questioning and hypothesizing become more detailed at this level.
