Mom of43 Stars Out Of 5Good for Older Elementary/Middle School Students...Not so Much For the YoungerMay 12, 2017Mom of4Quality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2To me, this is one of those curriculums that you are really excited about while prepping, and then once you actually start using it, you realize it's just not the best for your family.
We took a break from Mystery of History and went with AAH because we also use the Illuminations program through Bright Ideas. AAH is much more textbook style than MOH. This is fine for Middle School age, But my younger boys (2nd and 4th grades) don't enjoy it near as much as MOH. I have to pre-read every lesson to pull out the main points or they get bogged down. The only difference in AAH and AAH Jr. are the notebooking worksheets, no review quizzes and no/optional for further study assignments geared to younger kids. The reading is the same.
I do like the cut and paste on the explorer pages, coloring the flags helps the kids remember which explorer was from/explored for which country. The challenge cards are helpful too, I also use them for copywork for my youngers. (I think the challenge cards are only included with Illuminations).
My older 2, (grades 5 and 7), read and do the notebooking pages pretty much on their own, but they too enjoyed MOH much more.
Overall, it's ok and we will finish the first volume, but we will go to MOH 4 and skip AAH 2.
Sarah G5 Stars Out Of 5History without being bogged down by wars and datesFebruary 26, 2017Sarah GQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Really love this history curriculum. I like how it gets beyond just dates and gets to the people in history what where they doing, wearing, etc. The wars may be overly summarized for boys who like that sort of thing but then you can supplement with appropriate reading. I like how the curriculum comes together and adjusts for multiple ages. I am using with a 7th and a 9th grader. The 9th grader takes tests and does further study questions. I do wish the book offered structured note taking for all chapters and that there was a comprehensive review worksheet for the High School tests. Both things I could do if I took the time...but I haven't yet. Some chapters already have a quizlet for review. I have used both Vol 1 and am near done with Vol 2 and am very pleased. The curriculum doesn't drag, keeps the girls interested, and has them asking questions.
