    An excellent supplement for hands-on learners, this CD-ROM containing printable PDF files will bring a fresh enthusiasm to your history studies. The Guide Book Text introduces the "travel" itinerary, including tips and a planner so you can prepare ahead of time for the 25 lessons (called Stops). Each Stop includes fact filled, engaging readings which are created to be all you need for a compact or supplementary study. Several of the 'stops' also offer more than one project allowing you and your children options along the way. While some of the projects will require students to research further, others have all the necessary information provided.

    Activities vary and include creative writing, recipes, mapping activities, timelines, games, notebook activities, crafts, and lapbooks. Masters, detailed instructions, illustrations, and photos of finished products are all included to fully equip the parent for a successful hands-on history experience. An additional resource section offers a variety of books, videos, music ideas, bibliography of nonfiction books and websites, and research projects to accompany the projects if parents/students want to become further immersed into the Middle Ages! Reproducible for immediate family use only. ~Deanne

    What a great idea! Janice VanCleave introduces kids to the lives of famous scientists through short biographies and simple experiments that illustrates each scientist's discovery. The book is divided into two parts. Part One introduces types of scientists (astronomers, biologists, chemists, earth scientists, and physicists), although more than 5 types are profiled in this book. Here, you'll learn about the general history of each field. Part Two covers 20 specific scientists, each with an easy to read biography with scientific terms printed in bold so they can be referenced in the included glossary. Each biography is followed by an experiment, an extension activity, and recommendations for additional reading about that scientist. Aside from scientists you'd typically expect to be in a book like this (Einstein, the Curies, Galileo), many are refreshingly new names (Alhazen - optics, Mary Anning - paleontology, Rachel Carson - environmental biology). ~ Anh

    This time, Janice VanCleave takes us through the history of science, with an focus on each scientific discipline and how it has changed over time. The book consists of six chapters, which examine the histories of: science, astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science and physics. Each chapter and experiment opens with a "Did You Know" section to acquaint students with that time period, or an explanation of how a similar experiment was important to scientific discovery. Once the students understand the context, it's time to experiment! An objective or purpose, materials list, step-by-step directions, results, additional information and bibliography are included for each activity. For example, in the experiment on planetary motion, students will read about how early astronomers plotted orbits, then make a model of Neptune and Pluto's orbits, and discover for themselves why they don't "crash into each other". Neccessary materials are all around-the-house items, and as the experiments are geared for the elementary ages, most of them are not terribly involved or difficult to do. Even scientists too young to "stand on the shoulders of giants" can follow in their footsteps with these activities! - Jess

    Volume Two picks up where Story of the World Volume One left off, and it tells the fascinating story of the “Dark Ages,” from the fall of Rome through the Renaissance. This volume has been written very similarly to the other also, with a very readable text, appropriate for young children, told in a clear and engaging style. Each of the many chapters is relatively short, and broken up into smaller chunks that are the perfect length for curling up together and reading aloud. Also like the preceding book, this story of history doesn’t limit itself to a dry, white-bread-without-the-crusts retelling of a primarily European history, instead it is a rich, whole wheat blend of European, Indian, Chinese, Australian, Arabic, Japanese, Jewish, Mongolian, Turkish, African, Russian, and American history during the period, providing the young student with a much more complete view of what was going on all around the world during that intriguing time period. To cover every event in each of these diverse histories would take a whole library, however, and just as Susan Wise Bauer tells us in her first volume, use this volume as a springboard to more detailed readings about any events that you and the children find interesting and want to learn more about. A timeline and an index are included at the back.

    Like its predecessor, the Activity Book corresponds chapter-by-chapter with the text from the Story of the World readings, and the sections and activities are well-organized and easy to implement. Each chapter begins with review questions for the book. Narration exercises are also included, so that the child may write or dictate to you a summary of what they learned. A list of books for additional reading follows, each with a concise summary and an approximate reading level to help you find those most appropriate for your child’s ability and interest. Corresponding literature, consisting of more "story-like" volumes such as cultural tales and myths are also featured to liven up your history reading, lending a little more interest to those lovers of fiction. An excellent range of activities follow the reading lists, including map work, a coloring page, and projects, which include art, crafts, games, and other more "involved" activities. An abundance of opportunities for "beyond-the-book" learning about here, but as the author mentioned in the activity book for Vol. 1, you should not feel pressured to read every book and complete every activity - history studied in this manner should be a fun and enjoyable journey for all involved, not an endless checklist of items you "have to" complete to pass a test. These courses lend themselves very well to family study, and a lot of the activities would be much more enjoyable with at least a couple siblings or friends. Fortunately, Susan Wise Bauer has anticipated this, and has denoted chosen activities with a "C" to highlight its use as a good co-op or classroom activity. All in all, this looks like an very well-rounded, extremely enjoyable, and solidly chronological approach to history

    The text is available spiral-bound in the first edition or in paperback or hardcover in the revised version. the Activity Book is a bound paperback and is the revised version.

    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 12 ¼" x 9" binder provides you with a handy place to record the chronology of history from 5000 B.C. to today. Beginning in 5000 B.C. each sturdy page holds a bold horizontal line across the middle of the page representing 1000 years. The span of time on each page quickly decreases to only 50 years by 650 B.C. and then slowly fluctuates from between 100-5 years on each page from 0 A.D. to the present, varying to allow all major events and figures to be marked. At least one year is marked on every page below the timeline in order to provide you with markers, and quotes from people throughout history adorn the top or bottom of every couple pages. Following the 112 timeline pages are 17 blank maps of ancient times and the world today. This book is nicely packaged in a 3-ring binder, allowing you to easily flip through the pages and view specific dates. You may easily use this record for writing or drawing in events and people yourself as you study, or see above for accompanying timeline packets. ~ Steph

    Do you love the hands-on style and visual aid of timelines with historical figures on them, but arenââ‚â„¢t sure how to put one together? This book by Amy Pak takes away the guess work by suggesting exactly where figures should be placed on a timeline. You can put the figures wherever you want (at the birth of a person, at their death, or when they did something great) but this book gives some great tips for how to put together a timeline in an organized, consistent manner. The beginning pages of the guide discusses timelines in general and talks about sizing the figures, coloring, adhering, paper choice, and how to use the finished timelines to teach. The Table of Contents makes it easy to find specific pages in the Record of Time and the Index makes it easy to place specific figures from the History Through the Ages timeline figure sets. Placing the figures in the Record of Time notebook will no longer be intimidating after you see the suggested placements given in this useful book. ~ Rachel

    In the spirit of the Patriot's History of the United States, these two volumes tout American exceptionalism as the U.S. took its place on the world stage as a superpower. Authors Larry Schweikart and Dave Dougherty give us insights into three themes: 1) the competing ideologies that vied for dominance in American society and politics, termed Progressivism and Constitutionalism; 2) the rise of American global power, with the corresponding decline of European influence; and, 3) the rise of new non-Western powers challenging the U.S. for world leadership.

    The authors believe that America is exceptional in that it has possessed 4 characteristics that propelled it to greatness: Protestant Christianity, common law, a free-market capitalist economy, and the sanctity of private property. Great Britain at one time embraced these same principles, which, not coincidentally, happened to be during its time of greatest world influence. These "pillars of democracy" have been the cornerstone of America's success and will determine its future status in the world.

    Volume II covers the years 1945 to 2012, and the 586 pages of text is separated into nine chapters. If you want a good summary of what was happening in the world after WW II, this would be a wonderful place to start. Topics covered include the Communist influence, the Cold War, the nuclear arms race, wars in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan, the civil rights movement, Third World dictatorships, the emergence of China, even commentary on the fashion industry, the car culture, rock music, television and the internet.

    The 20th century has been called the American century. Reading through these two volumes will show why. If we continue to embrace the principles that made us a great country, America can continue to be a force for good in the world. ~ Bob
