    Story of the World Activity Book 1 "From the Earliest Nomads to the Last Roman Emperor" is authored by Susan Wise Bauer. She is a faculty member of the College of William and Mary, and co-author of "The Well Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home."

    Story of the World Activity Book 1 is a companion to Bauer's "Story of the World Volume 1 Ancient Times "From the Earliest Nomads to the Last Roman Emperor." The resource is divided into forty-two chapters which correspond to those in "Story of the World Volume 1 Ancient Times."

    Each chapter is broken down into the following components:

    Encyclopedia Cross References

    Review Questions

    Narration Exercise

    Additional History Reading

    Corresponding Literature Selections

    Coloring Page

    Map Work

    Review Cards

    Activities (The activities are divided into the following categories: Writing, art, craft, historical, music and cooking.)

    Map Answer Key

    Student Pages

    The author has included sections titled "How to Use This Activity Book" and "Pronunciation Guide for Reading Aloud" to guide the user through the resource. This resource is available in the formats of 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, and look forward to continuing our study with Story of the World Volume 2 The Middle Ages "From the Fall of Rome to the Rise of the Renaissance."

    After looking it over I do believe this will work for History for my 2 middle girls that are just a grade apart( 5th and 6th next year). I also look forward to used the other Story of the World volumes.

    My daughter loves this book and is fascinated my the stories. She's 5 so she is reading through this with some help since the concepts are still a little difficult for her to understand. Her 8 year old cousin is also reading it and loves it. I eventually plan to teach this to my two other younger children so I bought the hardcover version. It is very well made.

    Although we continued to read on, I did not agree with Susan's initial date of creation. The book is well written though and it is useful for beginning a study on World History.

    The book is well written and conversational in style. The chapters are broken down into sections that allow our elementary age student to learn in digestable amounts. The activity book further emphasizes the "fun" of studying history.
