HLC Curriculum: Grade 5, 3rd ed, Printed Version




We are particularly proud to present this third edition of the HLC Program. After an extensive program review, key updates were made including the following specific content enhancements:

  • Updated all data, activities, vocabulary, and references to reflect most current health information
  • Incorporated new books or activity resources that support lesson concepts
  • Expanded vocabulary words to reflect changing social dynamics and to improve understanding of key concepts
  • Diversified gender roles and reduced stereotypes
  • Broadened character names (in stories and hands-on activities) to expand inclusiveness
  • Simplified lesson preparation by highlighting all necessary materials at the start of each lesson activity
  • Refreshed “Home Connection” parent newsletters to include more experiential learning activities and modified “Rockland News” student newsletter to reflect changes within lessons
