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.

Ron SmorynskiHollywood, CAAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Good overview, Biblical, Creation, unashamedSeptember 3, 2013Ron SmorynskiHollywood, CAAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a good overview for kids of all ages. I think this is way better than what I have seen in public school printings. They are full of color and graphics and that liberal history that does everything it can to avoid or malign the Bible, God and Christ.
I've just started but have looked through, it has more suggestions on projects and work than I care for! But that's a good thing. And its format is easy enough that I can even make my own tests or use hers.
RDHoffaHernando, MSAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great for integrating Biblical and secular historyAugust 24, 2013RDHoffaHernando, MSAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is very easy to understand and is almost written in conversational style. The information is presented clearly and systematically. There seems to be some extensive prep work for the parents in the early stages. The author writes an extensive preface about how to best utilize the book and its exercises. The material isn't stiff and boring like some history books are. We are enjoying it and plan to continue with the other volumes.
okiemamaOklahoma5 Stars Out Of 5Great for multiple agesJune 14, 2013okiemamaOklahomaWe will be using this curriculum next school year, but as I flipped through it, I got really excited! I love the extra activities to help make history come alive. We'll also be using a timeline and some additional material from the publisher. This looks like it will be easy to do for all three of my boys (grades 5, 3, and 1).
KateChicago, Il5 Stars Out Of 5This book looks amazing. Great format.March 26, 2013KateChicago, IlQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Heard many good things about this curriculum. Look forward to using it next school year. Great layout and walks you through how to implement it. Easy reading style.
mayrainLas VegasAge: 35-44Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Did not cover what expected.March 3, 2013mayrainLas VegasAge: 35-44Gender: femaleI felt like this book was much more Bible History than anything else. I knew it would have a Christian perspective, but I guess I just wasn't familiar with how the book would lay everything out. I thought the Bible characters would be woven in with the World History Lessons, but they were separate lessons. Which isn't in itself bad, but I expected it to have world History with Bible facts interjected. This would be great for a Bible class addition.
