    This beautifully designed timeline package is designed to accompany the History Odyssey program and includes four timelines: Ancients (6000 BCE - AD 500), Middle Ages (AD 500 - 1600), Early Modern (AD 1600 - 1850) and Modern Times (AD 1850 - Present Day). Although timelines are blank for the student to record events, they are printed in full-color and feature small graphics sprinkled here and there. To keep entries organized, each timeline is divided into seven category sections including: Men & Women, Inventions & Discoveries, Wars & Conflicts, Eras & Dynasties, Art & Literature, General Events, and Treaties/Agreements. Each timeline is five feet in length, features evenly spaced date lines, and can be displayed on a wall or hole-punched and placed into a binder. An optional Prehistory Timeline is also available if you would like to add a segment covering 2 million BCE to 7000 BCE (item #39409) Also, the optional timeline sticker pack is still available (#42770) which features 200 black-and-white stickers of famous people and events from 6000 BCE to present day.

    This historical romp through the middle ages is rather the opposite of the Famous Men book for the same period. Instead of looking at certain persons, this book steps back and looks at the collective whole of medieval life in Britain. And, yes, he runs into some of those famous men along the way. Chapters cover groups of individuals – peasants, minstrels, outlaws, monks, philosophers, knights, damsels, and kings. Investigating each, the author describes in generalities, and then cites specifics in terms of people and events. Frankly, the information is fascinating in its breadth and provides a number of surprises, such as the amount of belongings owned by some peasants or the degree of openness in communication concerning sexual acts. There are two sets of full-color art reproductions depicting various aspects of life in the medieval time period (defined, by the way, as from 1066 – the Norman conquest – through 1536 – Henry VIII's suppression of the monasteries). Please note that the target audience is older than the Famous Men books and some content is more graphic than you might expect. Also, at least one of the paintings features a (captive) female nude. 224 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    Linda Hobar, the author of this world history series, states in the beginning of this book, "I believe history is the story of God revealing Himself to mankind and that He did it most perfectly through the person of Jesus Christ…the "mystery" is the gospel of Jesus Christ." What a refreshing and different view from most world history curriculums! Those looking for a world history program that aligns the stories of mankind with the living story of God will truly appreciate this Bible-centered approach to the history of the world. Picking up where Volume 1 leaves off, this volume begins with the Pentecost and the first followers of Jesus (including Paul) around 29 A.D and chronologically continues through the early church and moves into the Middle Ages, covering the years through about 1456 A.D. The format of this book is very similar to that of the first volume; however, there are some small differences. Firstly, there are fewer lessons (84 as opposed to 108), but these lessons are slightly longer, offering more information on a given topic. Lessons generally take the form of real-life biographies, sharing the stories of men and women who changed the world while simultaneously showing the relationship between God and the world during that period. Another new feature is the bolding of key words to aid students in finding the information again later for activity or vocabulary purposes. As in the first book, this volume includes pretests to be given at the beginning of each week, end of the week reviews, memory card suggestions, bi-weekly quizzes, quarterly worksheets, and two semester tests. Memory cards are fact cards that students create for each lesson, capturing the main points and dates on an easy to review flashcard. The end of the week reviews continue to hold timeline and mapping exercises, providing students with helpful visuals of when important figures lived and where places studied are located. This volume also contains even more activities following each lesson than the first volume. This is simply to provide you with more choices, not to overwhelm you with feeling like you should do them all! These activities are generally categorized into younger, middle, and older student activities in order to accommodate the curriculum to a wider spread of grade levels, with the youngest comprised of many hands-on activities to help them experience history, middle activities a combination of hands-on exercises with research, and the older ideas centering on research, encouraging students to learn more and dig deeper into the people and lessons from history. The activities and memory cards, as well as the weekly and quarterly reviews and tests, are meant to ensure long-term retention of the key events and people throughout history, as opposed to the short term memory capacity we often hold history (and other subjects!) lessons in. The back of this hefty 700-page book contains the outline maps for the lessons, additional fun supplemental activities, suggestions of books and resources for further study of many of the topics, a chart of materials needed for the activities found in each lesson, and a full answer key. The fascinating journey across the continents continues as students discover who lived when and the way God worked His plan throughout this period of history. ~ Steph

    This book covers it all, from the dawn of history right up to the year 2000, for all the major civilizations, all the rulers, and all the events in world history. Pages are filled with clear, interesting accounts of historical events, realistic reconstructions of scenes, and tons of incredible photographs. More than 100 charts and maps are included, allowing you to see exactly where events took place. Besides being an intriguing book to read, this is also your link to world history on the web. After reading about a subject, go online; every link leads you to a website where you can read additional information, watch video clips, play games, see photos, and use other unique website features to experience "virtually" all of world history. I was never much for history, but I wish I had this book when I was younger; these websites look really intriguing. For a study of the ancient world you can get virtual tours of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, a virtual walking tour of Rome and Athens, learn to speak Ancient Greek, write in hieroglyphics, take interactive tours of museums, explore the Valley of Kings in Egypt and learn about the pharaohs buried there and their tombs through photos and panoramic movies, view profiles of famous Romans and Greeks, explore a clickable Roman marketplace, and loads more. Some sights are interactive, where you can, for example, reenact the Battle of Hastings, and some are treasure troves of information, maps, timelines, and diagrams.

    Note: The first 100 or so pages of the book discuss the "Prehistoric World" (starting 4,550 million years ago with the Big Bang and proceeding to 12,000 years ago when the last ice age came to an end). This section outlines evolution and likely contains objectionable material. However, the rest of the sections (Ancient World, Medieval World, Last 500 Years) are more factual and make up for the first. A colorful, captivating book. 416 pages. Stephanie
