Product Description

The Mystery of History Volume 1 is written from a Christian, young-earth, perspective, teaching children to see God's hand throughout history...and how the Gospel of Jesus is the mystery behind all of history! Written in a conversational style, many lessons are presented in the form of mini-biographies, integrating fascinating stories with the events of the time. Covering creation to the resurrection, students will learn about famous biblical characters, ancient peoples, and well-known men such as Aesop, Buddha, Pythagoras, Confucius, Emperor Asoka, Herodotus, Caesar, Hannibal, and Herod.

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.

This second edition features the following updates & improvements:

  • Over 140 new pages that enrich the lessons; broaden the scholarship level of the text; develop new activities; enhance the mapping exercises; and simplify the timeline directions.

  • The Table of Contents has not changed, but has been improved with better chronological detail, based on the work of James Ussher.

  • The layout has been changed to a cleaner, more-readable style, and features upgraded artistry, photos, font, and cover; an expanded reading list; Answer Key maps for all the mapping exercises; a pronunciation guide; a Bible reading list; and more.

      Ms. Hobar is a fantastic writer, and I do love this curriculum for many reasons. The coverage is good. The timeline is well spaced out over the four volumes, and the text is written in an engaging manner for all ages.

      However.. I do like to see illustrations. It seems to me as though illustrations and other engaging materials are missing from the text. In fact, there are no illustrations whatsoever aside from a few secondary scene cliparts (and the maps in the back of the book). What I mean is that there are enough of them to make it so the pages are not COMPLETELY lacking in pictures or illustrations of what we have read but enough so that it seems like there are "blanks" purposefully placed so that parents would have to purchase the coloring pages and the timeline figures etc., etc. in order to get the full picture. For example, in Lesson 7 we read about the Sumerians where cuneiform is explained in detail. The activity in this lesson is to make our own cuneiform tablet complete with instructions but no illustration to show us what it even looked like.

      I've put off implementing our history curriculum until the fall because this curriculum is not complete. The extras are simply not optional and so the book needs to have more specific instructions for the parent as to how and when to implement it all together, like Tapestry of Grace has done.

      Not recommended for new homeschoolers like me.

      I am wrapping up my first year of homeschooling and looking back on all my mistakes, buying this book was one of the few choices I made RIGHT on the first try!I What I love most about this course is it's flexibility. It had everything I needed when I was clueless (time line, preview, easy to read and engaging content, quizzes, review cards, activities) but isn't dependant on anything but the readings, which freed me up to easily add to it in my own way when I wanted to. I see a lot of people disappointed with the time line. ..but that's where discernment and flexibility comes in. Try it a different way, or don't do it at all. .. there are sooooo many options! For us we didn't really do it the first couple of weeks, until I found free printables. So now while I'm reading my son colors the timeline cut out. ..or plays with blocks and I color it whenever I get to it. We don't have much space so I just paste them to index cards and make it a game once a week to scramble the deck and let my son lay them out order on the living room floor. I'm still new at all of this, but one thing I learned quickly was to adjust what you can to your needs. .. not pretzel yourself to follow someone else's idea.

      So if you want a chronological, multi level, scripture based, fun, flexible, clearly laid out, history curriculum that focuses on the significance of events rather than just the dates. ... This is definitely worth the investment.
