What your child is learning

Your Grade 4 child will examine the relationship between the geography of Alberta and the history and culture of Alberta’s peoples. Exploring Alberta’s rich history and development will help them understand the province’s diversity, instil a sense of pride and identity, and help them value and respect the province and its people. For more about Grade 4 Social Studies, refer to the program of studies.




How your child is assessed

Your child’s learning is assessed using a variety of tools and strategies within the classroom. Ask your child’s teacher what methods they are using. The different assessment methods tell you and your child’s teacher about your child’s strengths, the areas in which they might grow and how well your child is doing throughout the course. Your child’s teacher can then change or refine their teaching plans to ensure that learning activities better meet the needs of your child. At the end of the course, your child is assessed and their achievement is reported so that you know if they have achieved the expected learning outcomes for their grade.
