The Mystery of History Volume 2 continues the story of God's working in history with lessons that cover the early church that arose after the death of Christ (AD 33) through the Middle Ages and the invention of the printing press. This classical curriculum is written from a Christian, young-earth, perspective, and gives students insight into 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 that integrate fascinating stories with the events of the time.
Arranged by semester, quarters, weeks and lessons, each quarter begins with an "Around the World" summary of events to introduce the time period; lessons progress c hronologically with each week having 3 lessons, a pretest, review, activities (including Memory Cards) and exercise or quiz. The 84 lessons will take a year to complete if you follow a traditional 36 week school year (3 lessons per week).
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's memory up to date! Suggested Schedules for different age groups are included, as well as plenty of reproducibles.
Line-listed answers included. 714 three-hole-punched and perforated pages. Softcover. Activity pages are reproducible. Grades 3-8, but adaptable for the family.
This is still the first edition of Volume II, but currently is the 7th printing, which features minor changes such as altered dates (29 AD to 33 AD).

anonymous5 Stars Out Of 5Can't wait to get into this bookFebruary 19, 2016anonymousQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We have done Mystery of History 1 and LOVED LOVED LOVED it! My daughter, 3rd grade, can't wait to open it. Though we took longer than a year to go through the first one, she KNOWS all about the people throughout the whole book. It has been an amazing set up in learning about the Bible and the World as time went on, and for her to actually grasp and remember it...as a 2nd and 3rd grader.....has been awesome to watch!!!! MY knowledge has increased so much and the Bible makes sooo much more sense now. Highly recommend the first volume and am sure hoping this 2nd is as good! Will write a review again after going through it.
Vanessa3 Stars Out Of 5A bit frustrated..August 27, 2014VanessaQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I don't know but is anyone else who has done MOH Volume 1 disappointed that Volume 2 does not have the map activities answer keys? I really loved Volume 1 and although it was time consuming to plan and grade, it had everything even though it was scattered. Unfortunately Volume 2 because it doesn't have the map answer keys just makes it that much harder and time consuming to grade. I'm a bit frustrated at the moment as I'm grading the first week's lesson activities and realized there is no map answer key.
jessommy5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful!November 8, 2013jessommyThis product is so easy to implement and is an all inclusive history book for this time period. My children can all study history together from a biblical perspective and enjoy activities at their own levels or participate in the activities all together after each lesson. We absolutely love it!
Suzy5 Stars Out Of 5October 11, 2013SuzyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This homeschool family loves MOH. Christianbook.com's price for this book was the lowest I found, even including shipping.
sw1225ohio4 Stars Out Of 5if only...May 1, 2013sw1225ohioQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3We were very happy with MOH vol. 1, and vol. 2 promises more great chronological learning of history from a Christian perspective. If only the pages were perforated! They were both perforated and hole-punched in vol. 1, which was very convenient for adding to a binder, and reproducing maps (since they are used more than once). I'm not even sure how we're going to use the maps in vol. 2. If you buy this book, plan on also buying the CD of reproducibles.
Q: Could you recommend a similar History curr. to that of the Mystery of History but more suitable for young primary students...2nd graders to be specifi Would love to find a History Pockets for the Middle Ages too.
An excellent beginner curriculum covering the Middle Ages would be book 2 in the "Story of the World" series (CBD stock number WW339108), combined with the Activity Book (WW412449).
