4th Grade

  • Welcome to Fourth Grade, we are looking forward to another successful year here at PLP! Fourth grade is an important school year for the students as they transition to the upper grades.


    Here at PLP, fourth graders learn through active inquiry and we aim to develop the whole child while meeting certain goals and attitudes outlined in the IB student profile.


    Our approach to learning through inquiry is rigorous, yet still meets the needs of all students. There is a strong emphasis placed on the ideals of international mindedness and responsible citizenship.


    We have many exciting learning adventures ahead of us as we learn and grow together!


    Our IB units this year are:

    *How We Organize Ourselves: Focusing on California’s Government

    *How We Express Ourselves: Focusing on California’s Cultural Contributions

    *Sharing the Planet: Focusing on California’s Geography & Green Technology

    *Where We are in Place and Time: Focusing on California’s Mission System, California’s Statehood, and The Gold Rush

    *Who We Are: Focusing on connecting California to the nation

    *How the World Works: Focusing on Energy
