Time4Learning is an online student-paced learning system covering preschool through middle school. It is popular as a fifth grade homeschool curriculum, for afterschool enrichment, for remediation, and for summer study.
The lesson plans below provide a detailed list of the fifth grade social studies curriculum, with brief activity descriptions and learning activity (LA) numbers. Additional resources related to fifth grade social studies are also provided, below.
Students enrolled in fifth grade social studies will have access to both fourth and sixth grade social studies lessons as part of their membership, so they can move ahead or review at their own pace.

Lesson Activity Finder Tool
The lesson activity finder is one of the many helpful tools that Time4Learning offers its members. The activity finder is a shortcut that makes it easy for parents to preview lessons or find extra practice for their child.
Every lesson in the curriculum has a unique activity number, referred to in the lesson plans as an “LA Number.” These numbers can be found on either the scope and sequence pages or the lesson plans in the parent administration area.
The activity finder can be found in the lower left hand corner of the Student LaunchPad page. To use it, members simply log in to their child’s account, type the Learning Activity (LA) number of a lesson into the Activity Finder and click “Go” to open it.
