During the middle years (grade 5 through 8), students will cycle through the same historical periods and science topics as in the primary years, but they will learn how to make connections and study biographies. They will increasingly learn how to ask questions and extract information from a text. On top of that, middle graders will learn several note taking skills, and how to present the information from a text into a graphic. Information is offered, processed and represented in different formats. As during primary years, students will do a lot of hands-on activities and experiments. Reading literature becomes an inmportant part of their Language Arts. During these years, hadith is added as an additional course.
