DepEd Math and Science Lessons for Grade 4, Grade 5, and Grade 6: Detailed List

Whether you're a homeschooling parent planning your lessons for the year, or a mom looking for which topics to review your child on so you can help him or her prepare for upcoming high school entrance exams, this quick list of science and math lessons for Grades 4, 5, and 6 -- based on the official DepEd curriculum -- will surely come in handy.

This post is divided into several sections:

Math

List of Math lessons for Grade 4, by quarter

List of Math lessons for Grade 5, by quarter

List of Math lessons for Grade 6, by quarter

Compiled list of Math lessons for Grade 4 to Grade 6, by topic

Science

List of Science lessons for Grade 4, by quarter

List of Science lessons for Grade 5, by quarter

List of Science lessons for Grade 6, by quarter

Compiled list of Science lessons for Grade 4 to Grade 6, by topic

In each of the Math and Science sections, we have a list of lessons organized by year level (Grade 4, Grade 5, or Grade 6) and then by quarter (or grading period, from 1st to 4th) based on DepEd’s own curriculum. If you’re looking to mirror the DepEd schedule in your own lesson planning, these are the lists that you will probably find most useful.

We have also linked to our HuntersWoodsPH worksheets — both printable and answerable online — for those lessons that have them, so that you can have an easily accessible way to review each lesson as it is learned or reviewed.

In addition, we have also put together a compilation of all the Grade 4 to 6 Math and Science lessons, organized by topic. There are two compilations: one for Science and one for Math. So, for example, while addition and subtraction of fractions are taught during Grade 4, and multiplication and division of fractions are taught during Grade 5 in the DepEd timetable, they’re all listed under “Fractions” in the Math compilation. This gives you greater leeway when doing lessons — tackling “advanced” topics if you feel your child or student is ready for them, or spending more time on certain subject matters if you think a deeper or prolonged dive would be much more helpful.

Also, the compilations can give you just a really convenient quick look at what topics our students are expected to have learned by the close of sixth grade. To that end, we’ve included links to two printable (PDF) checklists reflecting the Math and Science compilations, which you can print and tick off as you go along. We’ve found it helpful to go over the list with our kids and identify (and be proud of!) those topics they’ve already learned. (They like putting the checks on the boxes themselves.) At the same time, they get an overview of what they still need to learn, which will hopefully help them prepare themselves and manage their time and energy accordingly.

All right.
