    Learn ancient history from a Bible-centered perspective. With short, interesting readings every day you will discover how history fits together. What famous Bible figure lived when the Trojan Horse was built? Who lived in North America around the time that Jeremiah wrote Lamentations? This historically accurate book tells you who walked the earth when and helps put their life in perspective around important events that happened worldwide during their lifetime. Unique historical photos are shown throughout, along with fun projects and timeline and mapping assignments. Another feature are the memory cards, which you add to every week to keep your facts straight. Quarterly reviews and semester tests are provided. Although this is intended for 4-8 graders, it is easily adapted to both older and younger students for an all-in-one history book as assignments are included for all grade levels. ~ Stephanie

    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 fictitious tale is set in Ancient Rome. Caius, Rufus, Antonius, Mucius, Flavius, Julius, and Publius are students in the finest grammar school in all of Rome. Only wealthy patricians can afford to send their sons to this school, so these seven are the entire class. One day Cauis begins to irritate Rufus, and Rufus retaliates by writing "Cauis is a dumbbell" on his writing tablet and hanging it up at the front of the classroom. This leads to a scuffle, which their teacher soon dissolves. Rufus is sent home, and the boys are subdued. The next day arrives with a string of mysteries. Neither Rufus nor Cauis come to school, but an even bigger problem is that the teacher isn't there! This has never happened before. The remaining students find him tied up in his closet, his house ransacked. It appears that the burglar took only some mathematic books, unimportant pictures, and Rufus's writing tablet. When the boys go to visit Rufus, they find the words "Cauis is a dumbbell" written in red paint on the temple wall. Rufus claims he is innocent and his handwriting was forged, but his classmates discover that he was out all night long, with no good alibi. Now Rufus has been arrested, and it's up to his six friends to find out who is behind all the mysteries before Rufus is punished for desecrating the temple!

    People throughout history have been fascinated by the moon. As the closest heavenly body to earth, it provides light at night, an intriguing surface, and fascinating phase changes. Even though we can't pull the moon down to take a closer look at it, you can experience the comfort and mystery of the moon in your own room! This creative night light is designed to look like the face of the moon, and can be hung on any vertical surface. Its surface is textured to resemble the moon, and is translucent enough that the lights behind it filter through to "glow" when it is switched on. And that's not all! Simply switch it on to experience the full moon's glow. Or use the manual phase button or automatic phase button to take the moon through its phases, from a sliver to a full moon, and back again. It's a perfect night light, for it automatically lights up in a darkened room, and shuts off after 30 minutes if there is no manual interaction. An on/off switch is found on the moon itself, and the handy fist-sized remote control contains the manual phase, automatic phase, and on/off buttons. A perfect complement to a room already filled with glow-in-the dark stars or a perfect night light for the child who just needs a little light to put them to sleep. Moon requires 4 'AA' batteries, and remote requires 2 'AAA' batteries; however, no batteries are included. Jess

    Designed to accompany the newest volume of Mystery of History, 111 black and white figures of people and events span the period of time from 1300 to 1700 AD. Each figure is accompanied by a name, date, and descriptive text, and range in size from 2.5 inches to 3.5 inches. Figures are printed on heavy cardstock and are black and white. 12-13 figures are on each 8 ½" by 11" page and will need to be cut out for placement on your timeline. There is no timeline included in this set of figures.

    If you are making more than one timeline for multiple children, figures are reproducible for family use. Although the primary purpose of these figures is for use with Mystery of History III, they could also be used with any study of this time period. See history in order of events and how one event leads to another. - Donna

    There are times when I pick up a new item and find myself saying "Wow I sure wish this was around when I was being homeschooled!" I loved maps and geography. Actually, I still do. So when I had the opportunity to explore this program, I was very excited. The concept is very simple: these are PDF maps that can be manipulated to show just what you need you can add or subtract names, borders, rivers, color, cities, and physical features at will. With the newest version, you can even edit maps in Adobe Reader and print them. This makes this a fantastic resource for many ages and skill levels and a really great value. There are four main map categories on the home screen: World, USA, Historical, and Thematic. The program includes 75 maps of the world, over 60 USA maps, over 150 historical maps and map sets from Mystery of History. When you click on "World" you are shown a world map with continents and oceans named. You can create a map at that level or click on one of the names to "zoom in" on a particular area. The next map, again, gives you the option to create a map or "zoom in" to get details on a couple of neighboring countries. There are only a couple of instances where the closest "zoom" will show an individual country (like New Zealand, Australia, Ireland/Northern Ireland), most show a continental region (like Southern Africa or Korean peninsula). The USA category can be explored by state or by region. In a similar manner to the countries, states are shown with their neighbors (though neighbors are only labeled with the state name and rivers if selected). The category for historical maps is further divided by time period: Ancient (Creation 33AD), Middle Ages (33 1456), Renaissance and Reformation (1457 1707), and Modern (1708 Present). Thematic maps include American history, Explorers, Native Americans, World Wars, Biblical Maps, 20th Century Treaties, and Chinese Dynasties. You can access different maps through several means. The first is the "zoom in" process described above. The second is via the left-hand navigation that pops up as soon as you select any category. This lists all of the major regions or time periods in the category so you can pick from the list quickly. The third way to access maps is via one of the alphabetical indexes unique to each of the four main categories.

    The content doesn't end there. All of the maps used in Mystery of History volumes 1-4 and All American History volumes 1-2 are included in the program. When you select one of those volumes you can either scroll through all of the maps or use the left-hand navigation to find the required map. These maps are not customizable, but are presented as they would be used in the programs.

    Another useful feature is the Teacher's Guide. The resources of the TG will be helpful for learning about this program as well as teaching geography in general: quick start guide, tutorial video, user manual, downloadable MP3 workshops on "Loving Geography" and "Packing a Punch with Timelines and Maps", and several lessons adapted from the book "Hands-On Geography": 50 bright ideas for using outline maps, the 5 themes of geography, how to make a salt-dough map, history and geography, 16 easy mapping projects, and Joseph's Journey.

    As far as supplemental geography resources go, this one is fantastic in scope and depth. With over 350 different maps and the ability to customize as needed, you can incorporate maps and geography into any lesson with ease. Compatible with Windows through Windows 10 or Mac and requires Adobe Reader 12.0 or higher. ~Zach

    If you're looking for some activities to enhance your study of The Mystery of History V.1, this handy CD-ROM is for you. Jean Henrich, a gifted artist, has provided the instructions to complete eight art projects to complement the main text. Thirty-five reproducible coloring pages are also included on the CD. Linda Lacour Hobar, author of Mystery of History V.1, has selected projects and coloring pages that will remind students of the ancient history they are learning, and she has linked the projects to corresponding lessons from the text. The correlating title and lesson number is identified with each project on the CD-ROM. Background information for each project, fun facts, brief histories, and lists of materials needed are included. The projects can be fairly complicated, require adult supervision, and require basic art supplies along with special materials like plasticine and polymer clay, acrylic paint, dried leaves, mosaic tiles, foam sheets, a hand drill, grout, and more (none of which is included). Step-by-step directions are given along with color photographs of assembly. Students can fossilize a fern in plaster, sculpt a Sumerian bas-relief, build an Egyptian shaduf, create an ancient oil lamp, assemble a Chinese cricket cage, construct a Greek temple façade, make Chinese paper cuts, and arrange a Roman animal mosaic. These projects will help students bring ancient history to life as they study and create, and the projects have different difficulty levels that can be geared toward various ages. Tips for successful projects and a suggested outline for the study are included, recommending 2 projects for each quarter so all 8 are finished in a year. The 35 coloring pages included on the CD-ROM provide five pages for each of the projects - five each for ancient botanicals, ancient Mesopotamia and Samaria, ancient Egypt, Israel, ancient China, ancient Greece, and ancient Rome. The projects and the coloring pages are in a PDF format on the CD-ROM, so you can scroll through them or easily print them off. This is a great supplement to The Mystery of History Volume 1 and will provide students with art to keep and enjoy that will remind them of the ancient history they have learned. Minimum requirements to run CD-ROM: Windows 95, 16 MB hard disk space, and optional additional 50 MB hard disk space to view some video on the CD.

    Based on her own childhood memories of growing up in San Francisco, author Kathryn Forbes introduces us to the delightful character of Mama, the mother of a Norwegian immigrant family growing up in San Francisco during the early 1900s. Despite the many obstacles that are thrown her way, Mama always manages to make the best out of it and conquer the situation. She is an extremely resourceful person who leads her family through such trying financial times as paying for Papa's expensive operation (without ever having to dip into the mystery bank account!). Mama's Bank Account is a heart warming tale about a loving mother who always unconditionally puts her family first. First published in 1943, this book was the inspiration behind the successful play, movie, and television show "I Remember Mama". ~ Enh

    Teaching classical music to younger students can be a challenge, but many have found Susan Hammand's Classical Kids series to be a great way to introduce the music and composers to kids. This Teaching Edition is amazing because it packages everything from the series on 14 disks. It includes the 9 CDs (Mr. Bach Comes to Call, Beethoven Lives Upstairs, Hallelujah Handel, Mozart's Magic Fantasy, Mozart's Magnificent Voyage, Tchaikovsky Discovers America, Vivaldi's Ring of Mystery, Daydreams and Lullabies, and Song of the Unicorn), 2 DVDs (Mr. Bach Comes to Call and Beethoven Lives Upstairs), and 3 CD-ROM disks. The CD-ROMs are basically the teacher's resources that can be viewed on-screen or printed out, including Comprehensive Teacher's Notes, scripts for each CD, and slideshow discussion points. Oh yes, I forgot to mention the slideshow DVD, which shows hundreds of pictures of art, architecture, and fashion from the times of the great composers and there's also a music only CD that includes some of the music without the narration. If you're serious about using Classical Kids to teach your students, this bundled edition of the entire series is certainly the way to go. All disks are stored in a hard, durable binder. ~ Rachel
