This pacing guide lays out each week of school until state testing allowing for a couple weeks before testing to catch up on missed indicators or for review. Each week outlines the topics and indicators that will be covered that week. Also embedded in the pacing guide are weeks use for catch up weeks in order to prevent getting behind. As noted in the guide, these catch up weeks can be used for unit projects if already caught up. I used this pace last year for my 4th grade social studies class and was able to finish 2 weeks before testing for review as well as include a couple projects throughout the year.
This pacing guide only corresponds with South Carolina Social Studies Standards for 4th grade.
