SOS 2009 is the perfect learning medium for a plugged-in generation just at home on the computer as in front of a book. With a core curriculum of 5 primary subjects--Bible, History & Geography, Language Arts, Math, and Science--this multi-subject program has everything you need for a comprehensive, flexible school year. Biblically-based, interactive, and with a host of new features for 2009, you'll get an up-to-date program that ensures your students receive a quality education tailored to their learning style!

Nine topics per subject are provided and include quizzes and tests. Fifth-grade students will study "Christian Basics" such as God's presence, the Christian in the world, Bible structure, and God's authority; gain an understanding of the Western Hemisphere, including the exploration of the New World, colonial life, America's beginning and development, and America's neighbors; improve their knowledge of literature, poetry, reports, language, sentences, and writing; learn about multiplication, division, fractions, calculators, place value, and estimation; and discover balance in nature through cells, animal and plant life cycles, rocks and fossils.
