Homeschool Specialists' Spotlights

Straightforward stories that introduce children to the grand sweep of history! This multilevel one-year curriculum for grades 1 to 4 covers ancient to modern times—from the dawn of civilization to the downfall of the Soviet Union—within the four volumes. Parents can read the text aloud to younger children or older children can read independently.

The corresponding activity books (sold separately) feature lots of projects, comprehensive questions, mapping, timelines, games, and crafts. Also included is a helpful reading list of fiction and nonfiction titles to enrich your child’s understanding of the time period.

Tests are sold separately, too, for parents who want to see how students are retaining the material.

My kids and I loved reading together and doing the projects. With so many great stories and activities to enjoy, there is something for everyone. This program can be used by the whole family to learn together! Approx. 350 pages each, softcovers.

    After using Story of the World for 3 years, we finally gave Mystery of History a try. What a difference. I know that Story of the World was not meant to be a Christian curriculum, but for something that is supposedly written by a Christian, it is a huge disappointment. The stories from the Bibles are treated more as fables, while muslims and catholics are painted in a favorable light.

    We will be selling all of our STOW books and switching over to Mystery of History, which is rich in the Gospel message. The other day we learned about the Great Awakening. You won't find anything like that in Story of the World.

    I can't imagine why Christian families use Well Trained Mine products. All products in which I have seen have a heavy Pagan or anti-Christian tone. Pagan fables are treated as if they are as valid as Christianity. The projects are very Pagan in nature. Some examples of Pagan projects are build a Pagan temple, mummify a chicken, make tattoos, etc. The Well Trained Mind curriculum design has children reading Mein Kampf and Communist Manifesto. As an adult solid in my faith, I still would not saturate my mind with the thoughts of Hitler. Where is the discernment amongst believers?!
