5th Grade Curriculum


The Democratic Knowledge Project (DKP) partnered with the History and Social Studies Department and 5th grade educators in the Cambridge (MA) Public School District to create 5th grade curricular units aligned with the Massachusetts History and Social Studies Frameworks. In 2022, the DKP’s fifth grade unit, “Expanding Liberty, Equality, and the Suffrage: 1776-1924”, was named as a recommended resource by DESE.

“Expanding Liberty, Equality, and the Suffrage: 1776-1924” is currently under redesign and will be available again in the summer of 2024.
