Arranged by quarters and weeks, each quarter begins with an "Around the World" summary of events to introduce the time period; lessons progress chronologically with each week having 3 lessons, a pretest, review, and exercise or quiz. The 108 lessons will take a year to complete if you follow a traditional 36 week school year.
Activities are broken down by age group and reinforce the material just learned through fun ideas that engage all learning styles; they're based upon the classical grammar/logic/rhetoric stages. Review exercises cover the timeline and map work exercises; quizzes are cumulative reviews that go over material from the very beginning of the course; the semester-long tests are similar (though longer), covering materials from 2 quarters (one major time period). Quarter-end worksheets help students synthesize what they've learned and keep everyone straight! Suggested Schedules for different age groups are included, as well as plenty of reproducibles. Line-listed answers included. 636 pages, activity pages reproducible, softcover, three-hole-punched and perforated pages. Grades 4-8, but adaptable for the family.

Mystery of History5 Stars Out Of 5the Mystery of History Vol 1February 2, 2015Mystery of HistoryQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I absolutely love it! My kids are 11, 9, 7 and 6. I switched my whole curriculum after reading sample pages of this book because I was so excited to get started with my kids. I cannot explain how excited I am about learning history from the very beginning of the Bible and what the rest of the world was doing at the time. The kids are enjoying it and remembering what they are learning but aren't nearly as excited as I am.
