We started switching classrooms in the 3rd grade. Granted it was only 2 teachers and the rooms were connected but we did switch back and forth depending on the subject.

Actually switching classes and teachers, where teachers taught a single subject happened in 7th grade.

I started elementary school in 196x, I was 5. There was no kindergarten or pre-school. Elementary school was grades 1-6, no switching, same teacher, same room. Intermediate school was grades 7 & 8, switching rooms/teachers started then.

I started switching classes for certain subjects in 3rd grade. Aside from things like gym, music, and art. We switched for those beginning in 1st grade when we started having them.

I went to Catholic school in NY in the 60s. We started switching classes in sixth grade. We were separated into the "A", "B" and "C" group. You were in the same group (B, in my case) for all the subjects. Imagine trying to label kids in that way today!

It would have been better for me had I been put in an "A" group for certain subjects and the "C" group in math and science, both of which I hated, did not excel at and dreaded.

But that was then.

Where I went to school K-6 was elementary, 7-9 was junior high, and 10-12 was high school.

In elementary, I remember switching classes for "specials" like art and music but other than that I think we were in the same rooms all day. Our classrooms were 1/2, 3/4 and 5/6 splits, though, so I assume there was flexible grouping for math and English. At junior high and high school, we switched classes for each subject.

I went to a school with K-12 all in the same building. It had a central core with cafeteria, auditorium and gym and then separate wings for K-6 and 7-12. We switched starting around 5th grade, but the whole class moved together. In 9th we actually began moving to different classes on our own. Funny thing was, even in high school we had lunch by class. So you had to go to homeroom when it was your classes' lunch period and line up and march to the cafeteria exactly like the kindergarteners. It was ridiculous.

Grade 6 in 1969. Two classrooms for math/science and English/social studies. French was in a separate language lab. Music was in a separate room. Same for shop and art. Back then, girls had home ec instead of shop. The middle school opened in 1967 but there wasn’t room for grade 5. At the time, they put the top-10% in accelerated classes. Everyone else didn’t get a foreign language and the core subjects covered a lot more material.

6th grade, junior high. That's when each teacher taught a different subject, in a different classroom. You also had in some grades switch outs, where you'd have science for one semester and then social studies or history and then back to science.

Technically switching classes started in elementary school in the fifth grade. You'd have a homeroom teacher that taught all subjects, but some kids would go to different rooms with different teachers for certain classes. Especially subjects like social studies and English. Somehow I ended up having the same teacher for every class that year, so I spent the whole day in one room, and didn't start switching classes until junior high.

Plus since the first grade, or maybe even kindergarten we had a different special each day. One day was P.E., one music, one computer class, one multi intelligence lab which I can't remember much of but I think it had art, reading, computer, etc, where you moved to different stations each week. So for those things we always switched rooms/teachers, but it was the whole class.
