    To round out your history curriculum I would highly recommend purchasing the activity books and test packets which accompany each volume. These resources are available in either paperback or PDF-download.

    Based on our experience with this series and the content of the curriculum, I would recommend it for Grades 5-8. Overall we have been pleased with Ms. Bauer's approach to world history. To continue your study of World history, I would recommend Story of the World Volume 4 The Modern Age: From Victoria's Empire to the End of the USSR.

    We love these series. They are very well written and easy for children to understand. We used to accompany what we were doing in our CC community each week and also use the activity guide and cd. They are worth every penny!

    I love the Story of the World series. My kids are always asking for more. This is an excellent presentation of world history and I would add an unbiased account. Bauer has really done us all a great service with her easily accessible series.

    This is our second year using Story of the World - and we have really enjoyed using it! I read aloud from the book (my sister lets the littles listen to the stories on cd), and we do the review questions, and a written narration afterwards - there are tons of fun activities (dressing up, games, crafts, cooking (which seems to be the favorite so far - all the recipes have turned out really well!) - I also like the coloring sheets - even my older children color them, and they are good fine motor practice for my eldest, whose handwriting is abysmal :). We've got out a ton of great books to go along through interlibrary loan, learned a whole bunch i wasn't taught in school, and this is probably our favourite part of the homeschool day...
