Product Description

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 chronologically with each week having 3 lessons, a pretest, review, activities (including Memory Cards) and exercise or quiz. This book integrates the text with write-in activity pages; these pages are reproducible for family use or students can write directly on the worksheets. 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 consumable worktext. Activity pages are reproducible for in-family use only. 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).

    This book is not written entirely from a "Christian perspective" as the product description states. If you decide to purchase this book please go over each lesson before reading it to your children. We are on lesson 11 in this book and so far we have come across 2 lessons of "catholic teachings" that were portrayed as "christian teachings" . If you know anything about the true early catholics they persecuted Christians for their faith in Jesus Christ. Catholic and christianity are not the same thing. Catholicism misses the boat when it comes to the gospel of Jesus Christ and the forgiveness of sins though Christ alone by believing on him. You cannot intertwine these two beliefs as one. The product value in my opinion is well priced for all of the content that you receive in the book. We did purchase the CD of extras to go with the lessons so that my children have a hands on approach. I will still use this book for this year as long as I go through the content beforehand so that I ensure my children aren't taught in something that we do not believe in. Next year and the years to follow I will not be using this curriculum.

    This might be mentioned but the product description needs to clearly state that these are workbooks (at least the first two volumes we've tried). By the end of the year, the spine is falling apart and the perforated pages start to tear. This is a workbook. Not a text. They're two very different things. The idea that they pitch this being a text you can come back to for three cycles is pretty humorous. I doubt most families can make it through two cycles without replacing it. A bit disappointing because we love the content.

    I am an 8th grade home-school student, my favorite subject is History. I absolutely love the "Mystery of History"! I retain the names and dates of events. The tests, quizzes, and pretests are extremely thorough. I believe the "Middle students" activities should be based on grades 4-6th, because they are a little easy for the age suggestion (6th-8th grade). Sincerely, Kaley

    We 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.

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.

A:

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).
