The Year 4 Bundle includes all twenty of the Year 4 units.  In each of the 20 units, you’ll find four components – history, geography, science, and art.  Here’s an overview of what you’ll find in Year 4.


Layers of Learning Year 4 covers modern history beginning with the late 1700s, with an
emphasis on the United States from its founding. It includes the establishment and
structure of the United States government, the Industrial Revolution and growth of the
nations, the Civil War, both World Wars, the Cold War Era, the Vietnam War, the Civil
Rights Movement, and the technology and terrorism of the modern world. International
topics include a history of revolutions around the world and historical overviews of
Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America.


The geography of the United States is explored in detail in Layers of Learning Year 4’s
geography course. Regional and individual state studies of all 50 states make up the
bulk of the coursework. There are also units on maps, economics, landscape regions,
U.S. National Parks, domestic landmarks and national symbols, and U.S. territories. The
capstone is a home state study.


There are units from each of the four branches of science in Layers of Learning Science
Year 4. The physical science component includes heat and temperature, motors and
engines, and energy. The earth sciences include the topics of the structure of the
earth, plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, and mountain building. The chemistry
section is comprised of applied chemistry topics – the chemistry of air, water, food,
farming, medicine, and how industries are utilizing advancing chemistry knowledge.
Finally, the biology component is focused on animal studies including food chains,
animal groups, instincts, habitats, and conservation.


Layers of Learning Year 4 Arts corresponds with the historical units and covers modern
art, artists, and movements. American and international artists are included. Romantic
art, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Expressionism, Abstract art, and Modern art are
all showcased. There are also units about photography, architecture, theater and film, and
modern music. Because the units dovetail with the historical studies, it also includes
specialty lessons on art during wartime, patriotic music, Latin American art, and other
modern events.

    Year 4 of Layers of Learning dives into US states and brings families up to current events in time. We loved completing our four year journey with these units, and it may have been our favorite year of study so far. Each book in the unit covers History, Geography, Science and Art and is designed for family style school. My middle schooler uses our discussions as a jumping off point, while my 2nd grader is just being introduced to the subject. We love all the hands on learning projects, unit printables, and youtube video playlist. Adding rich literature to each unit gives us the ability to have each child learn more at their own level. This curriculum has been the perfect fit for our family for four years now!
