As one of the authors and the technology consultant for Portfolios, you can
tell the grade level my looking on the back of each of the student
textbooks. Notice the paper people cutouts on the back. If it is grade
one, one people cutout is colored and the others are not colored. If it is
grade two, two people cutouts are colored and the others are not. It works
like this for the entire elementary series. The middle school series is
for sixth, seventh and eighth grades or for whatever grade you find
appropriate. Many people are using the middle school textbooks for high
school classes when students have had very little formal art education
instruction prior to high school.
Hope this helpls
