Welcome to Fourth Grade!
Fourth Grade at OHDS is a year of engaging immersion in the learning process. In both general and Judaic studies students explore multiple historical perspectives, build strong content knowledge and deepen their critical thinking skills in all areas. Students engage in research, in-depth reading and discussion, historical simulations, and hands-on learning across subjects. Fourth graders are developmentally at the “cusp” between childhood and adolescence and they thrive with the many opportunities for building self-understanding and participating in games and discussions that build a sense of empathy and responsibility for others. A beloved highlight of the year is the annual fourth grade Gold Rush overnight trip giving students a chance to connect as a community, build relationships with students from other Jewish day schools and step back in time as the history they have learned comes to life!
