“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.”
Sixth grade is a time of great change and new ways of thinking as pre-adolescence takes hold. The sixth grade curriculum supports the sometimes ego-centric preteen with ample opportunities to look outside themselves through observation in Astronomy and Physics, as well as cause-and-effect thinking when studying the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. As with all grades in the Waldorf curriculum, the Subjects scaffold the Main Lesson for an all-encompassing approach to learning.
