I am in the process of planning out our 5th grade year. It will be our first time using TOG, and my dd will be 10 (Upper Grammar, mostly).
I can already tell our school day will lengthen a bit, not only because of TOG but also because of other subjects we're adding in, and some of our current ones get a bit tougher next year, so they'll take longer.
In figuring out the time allotment, I was going to budget 30 minutes twice a week for geography, totaling one hour. But when I look at Go To Egypt, I see that the geography vocab alone will take a long time, not to mention the mapwork. Are the first few weeks uncommonly heavy, or should I allot 30 minutes *every* day for geography?
