Lower and Upper Elementary Presentations
The same themes are present in the lower and upper elementary. Themes are simply re-presented (sometimes with the same material and close to the same wording of the presentation!) and explored deeper and wider - more thoroughly.
In lower elementary the children explore the foundation, they are exposed to cosmic education and provided the grand overview of the universe. They then delve into details of interest.
EVERY year they receive the Great Lessons - every year they delve into different details.
Most album pages, the children get them when they get them - whatever is appropriate for the individual child.
The few album pages that are specifically set aside for only upper elementary, those that are "almost" a requirement to be in upper elementary, are going deeper with a particular theme from lower elementary - expanding upon and deepening it.
So focus lower elementary on laying the foundation in each area, and presenting the grand overview of Cosmic Education.
Then allow upper elementary for going deeper and more thorough.
