We asked parents who used our fifth-grade kit how long their student spent on "school." Nearly 90% of them estimated that they spent 2-5 hours a day on their kit. That is a lot of variation, and is likely to be impacted by how in-depth you take your child's studies, what is your child's learning approach, how distractible he is, and much more. Make sure you allow yourself and your child some time to find your own rhythm!
The Fifth-Grade Timberdoodle 2017 Curriculum Kit - Secular Edition teaches: Art, Geography, History & Social Studies, Language Arts, Math, Science, STEM, and Thinking Skills. It also includes our online custom schedule builder and concise Handbook to get you started.

Draw the USA
Most adults can probably do a rough sketch of Texas, Florida, and California. But unless you or a loved one lives in Iowa or West Virginia, you may be at a loss if asked to sketch those states. Draw the USA will give your child an opportunity you probably didn't have while significantly increasing his knowledge of the USA. With small, incremental steps your student will work through the entire USA, drawing each state as it connects to its neighbors until he can draw it all from memory.
