This free daily schedule has been developed for a 180-day (36-week) school year utilizing the free Grade 6 curriculum available through The Core Knowledge Foundation.
Please note: Currently the daily schedule includes a full year of language arts and social science (history and geography). It also includes the first 18 weeks of math (more units/lessons will be added as they are released by Core Knowledge). Core Knowledge recently released the first half of their sixth grade science curriculum. I am in the process of developing those support resources and plan to have those available late 2022.

Week six includes lessons from the language arts unit using the wonderful collections of short stories Flying Lessons. The history and geography lessons for this week discuss the history of ancient Greece and Rome. The math lessons are focused on the unit covering area and surface area.
