At this age, the children’s image of the world begins to find a new balance, as reasoning begins to emerge as a complement to feeling. The class studies the culture and myths of classical Greece and other ancient Asian and Middle Eastern civilizations, as their wisdom mirrors the exponential growth in the children’s overall ability and perceptive power.

Beginning to find their own authoritative voice, the children write original story summaries in their lesson books, illustrating these in colored pencil with ever-greater confidence and skill.
