Fourth grade (called Grade 4 in some regions) is a year of education in the United States and many other nations. The fourth grade is the fourth school year after kindergarten. Students are usually 9 or 10 years old, depending on their birthday. It is a part of elementary school. In some parts of the United States, fourth grade is the last year of Elementary School. Primary school is a school providing instruction for very young pupils, comprising the first three, four, or five grades of elementary school.

In Ontarian and English-based Nova Scotian schools, the study of the French Language begins. Fourth grade is equivalent of 'Year 5' in England and Wales, Primary 6 in Northern Ireland and Primary 5 in Scotland - the fifth year of compulsory education in England, Wales and Scotland, and the sixth in Northern Ireland. In Brazil the minimum age required for fourth grade was recently changed from 8 to 9 years old. In France, the equivalent to the above grade is the Level 1 Intermediate Course, known by its short form CM1. In the United States, in mathematics, fourth graders are usually taught how to add and subtract common fractions and decimals. Long division is also generally introduced here, and addition, subtraction, and multiplication of whole numbers is extended to larger numbers.
