    When reading the Bible, sometimes it is hard for kids (and adults) to see the "big picture." This big (and I mean BIG) Bible time line will help you see when the Bible events happened in relation to each other and how those events fit together to tell one BIG story! This reproducible book contains 68 11" x 8 1/2" pages. Each page highlights two major events, including a scripture reference, estimated time in history, and a black-and-white cartoon illustration that can be colored. When all the pages are hung side-by-side in chronological order it creates a 60' long time line. This timeline begins with Adam and Eve in the garden, and finishes with John being exiled on Patmos writing Revelation. Some fun activities are outlined in the introduction that will help you make the most of this great teaching tool. No matter how you put this time line to use, your children will appreciate the simple way it communicates the big picture of what the Bible is all about. Pb, 78 pgs. – elise

    Whether you're looking for an introductory or refresher art history course, this book is an all-in-one guide that makes learning about the most important and influential works of art throughout history easy. The book is divided into four major sections, each with its own introduction providing background information about the circumstances and conditions that worked to shape the focus and techniques of art during the period. Over 350 full color illustrations of paintings, sculptures, and architecture are presented in chronological order covering artwork from the prehistoric era through the end of the 20th Century. Each image is accompanied by color-coded text (which allows the user to quickly determine where the particular piece was made geographically) highlighting the work of art's contribution to and importance to the development of art. Sidebars are scattered throughout providing further detail about major art movements, artistic breakthroughs, and individual artists. Contains some nudity. 8 ⅝" x 5 ⅝", 120 pgs, pb. ~ Enh

    A fantastic companion to any study of history, or even just engaging reading for any history buff, this timeline is a very accessible "look-up" resource for historical events. History is divided into 20 eras, which each include a 32-inch fold out timeline and three additional pages that highlight specific figures and events from the period. The timeline pages begin with fairly large time spans and become narrower as the book progresses into modern times. There are four eras from the beginning of history to the BC/AD change, ten from AD1 – 1900, and six eras from 1900 to today (2010). There is also a 4-page, non-fold-out timeline covering American history specifically. I should also note that the first timeline covers "prehistory" from 6 million to 3000 BC. It includes "information" on the evolution and migration of "early humans." This is a secular text, though it does reference the lives of numerous religious figures throughout history. The timeline pages are packed with chronological dates accompanied by capsule summaries and plenty of photos and illustrations. 131 page, hc. – Zach

    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

    This high quality timeline allows you to view more than 6,000 years of Bible and world history side-by-side (actually, one is above the other, but they appear together on the same pages). The timeline spans from 2200 BC to 2006 and can be left in the hardback covering to be flipped through like a book (the timeline is folded accordion-style for easy viewing) or easily removed for full-length display. It features a continuous timeline across the top showing the year, with a thin bar just below showing different Bible/Christianity-related periods (such as Moses and the Exodus or the Fall of the Roman Empire). Along the bottom is a similar bar showing how the books of the Bible and time periods like the Renaissance fit in. The bulk of the timeline details important events in both Bible/Christian History (on the top section) and World History (on the bottom section). In this way you can easily see how different events related to each other and get a good picture of how everything fits together. Text, captions, life spans, dates, and full-color pictures all work together to flesh out the timeline. – Melissa

    This book is a visual treat for visual learners (like myself). I am a huge fan of the Rose Publishing pamphlets due to the wide variety of visually-pleasing Bible charts, maps, and time lines they offer. As a result, I was thrilled when this amazing book wound up on my desk. I had to force myself to stop looking through the pages so I could write this description! This book has 188 pages of spectacular full-color charts, maps, and time lines – many of which you can buy as individual pamphlets, but some that are not available individually.

    The content of this book can be broken up into six different categories. The first category is a section dedicated to general Bible charts. In this section there are charts that present the books of the Bible, an overview of the Old and New Testament, insight on how we got the Bible, lists of 100 well-known people and prayers, and a Christian history time line (which is really good!). Next you move into the Old Testament Charts, which provides you with an outline of creation, 100 well-known events, family trees, names of God, insight to the Ten Commandments, and wonderful charts that bring clarity to Judges, Kings, Prophets, the prophesies of Daniel, and important archaeological finds that support the Old Testament. The third section of this book gives New Testament charts. This section includes charts on the genealogy of Jesus; 100 prophesies fulfilled by Jesus; events, miracles, parables, and teachings of Jesus; information on the twelve disciples; 100 well-known events from Acts to Revelation; archaeological finds that support the New Testament; and other charts that cover well-known portions of scripture such as the Armor of God and Fruit of the Spirit. The next section contains twenty beautiful and well-labeled maps that highlight different features of the Middle East and The Holy Land, as well as showing where Jesus walked and the locations of Paul's missionary journeys. The fifth section includes colorful illustrations and diagrams of places described in the Bible, such as Noah's Ark, The Tabernacle, The Ark of the Covenant, Solomon's Temple, Herod's Temple, and a detailed diagram of Palm Sunday to Easter. Lastly, the final section provides information on Christianity, Cults, and Religions, denominations comparison, the Trinity, and a comparison of Islam and Christianity.

    This book is hardcover and has a spine, but it has a hidden spiral binding that allows you easily reproduce the pages for your classroom. This resource may seem a little pricey; however, if you bought all of these charts separately in pamphlet form, you would pay much more. Plus, you will be hard pressed to find another resource that so clearly presents the truths of the Bible in such an amazing visual format! – elise

    A personal record of major events and people encountered in history. Designed to be a record-keeping place, this book gives the framework; you supply the content. With a classical orientation (The very limited written content includes a quotation from Livy.) and an assumption of Biblical events (no actual Biblical or Christian content), the book consists of pages with lined and blank columns. Each two page spread covers a designated period of time. Each page has two columns. The two center columns of a two-page spread are lined (.25” lines) and the two outer columns are blank (for drawings or attaching pictures). Time designations are in the upper left or right corners (outer corners) of each page. Designated time periods differ per two-page spread and are as follows: 5000 - 2500 BC; then 2500 – 2200 BC. Each two-page spread for the rest of the book is marked as follows: 2200 – 1 BC (100 years each spread – 23 spreads); 1 – 1500 AD (100 years); 1500 – 1800 AD (50 years); 1800 – 1900 AD (20 years); 1900 – 2030 AD (10 years). Interspersed at appropriate places are two-page spreads labeled “In the Beginning;” “Men Begin to Multiply;” “A Flood of Water;” and “In the Fullness of Time.” Eleven pages for maps and notes conclude the book. 50 pgs. pb ~ Janice

    I am excited that Ray and Charlene Notgrass have written this excellent, one year world history course! While many families enjoy a chronological, multi-year approach to world history, others prefer to study history in a more traditional manner-one year at a time. Written in the engaging narrative ‘voice’ that has made the Notgrass courses beloved by many homeschool families, this new World History begins at the very foundation of our Christian foundation- Adam and journeys to the end of the 20th century, with a final unit on our interconnected world (from the thrill of world-wide sporting events to turmoil in the Middle East).

    Containing 30 units, with 5 lessons per unit, this course will take students one year to complete. It is anticipated that daily lessons will take 45-90 minutes per day, although it is naturally flexible for homeschool families to set their own pace. While the target grade range is 5 through 8, families with younger children will find this a perfect ‘read aloud’ curriculum, as the text has been clearly and engagingly written.

    Let me give a bit of an example of how the unit lessons are laid out. At the start of each unit, there is a brief introduction to the lessons including the recommended literature selection to accompany the reading. Each weekly unit has one lesson from each of five categories: Our World Story (major events in history); God’s Wonders (impact of the world’s created wonders on history and culture); World Landmarks; World Biography of some of history’s most influential personalities and Daily Life (an inside view of everyday life). Daily lessons are richly illustrated with graphics and photographs, including maps of historic places and regions. At the conclusion of each lesson (approximately 5-8 pages), parents and children will select assignments to complete from a list of 5-7 assignments. Older students may be able to complete all the activities-but again- there is built-in flexibility for your individual family’s needs. Assignments include readings from the Our Creative World book (collection of original documents); Map Book assignments; Timeline Book assignments; assignments from the Student Workbook and Lesson Review Book (optional resources), as well as language arts assignments covering vocabulary, creative writing, literature selections. Thinking Biblically assignments are also included with most lessons and are designed to engage students in applying Scripture to history and life. Each unit also provides a suggested weekly family activity-projects vary and include arts and crafts, recipes and games. Materials are easily found for the projects and are designed to bring the family together to enjoy time together building memories.

    Curriculum package contains From Adam to Us Part 1 & 2; Our Creative World, Map Book, Timeline Book and the Answer Key to end of the lessons questions as well as the activities and tests in the Student Workbook and the questions and tests in the Lesson Review. Although it is possible to share the Map and Timeline books, they are available separately, allowing each child to have their own copy. I suspect that most children will be eager to create their own map and timeline.

    If you would like to add more supplemental instruction or review, consider the Student Workbook (5th-6th grade) or the Lesson Review (7th-8th grades). Both include additional assignments that correspond to the daily lesson as well as unit tests and questions related to the literature selections. Most literature based questions are recall based. However, there are a smattering of higher level thinking questions.

    Middle school children will be enthralled as they view world history through the lens of a Creator God who is alive and active, from the very foundation of our world through present day. ~ Deanne

       Fantastic... but there’s much more than timeline here! The timeline itself (folding out to 11 feet from the front cover) is packed with information. Starting from the beginnings of Israel (Biblical history) and continuing to modern Israel, significant events of Jewish history and culture are placed in the context of European, Mid-Eastern and world events. Dating uses the Gregorian and Jewish calendar equivalent from 3761 BCE to 2010 CE. Secondly, the timeline’s reverse side contains articles on Judaism, Jewish history, customs, etc. Finally, a 35-page book attached to the back cover includes detailed information on persecution, Jewish influences in the arts in the USA and Europe, Zionism, Israeli Wars, Arab conflicts, etc. This is an excellent, concise resource for Biblical, cultural or historical studies. hc. ~ Ruth

    The first of four units in the MFW high school program, this one is considered foundational to the rest and covers Bible, history and English and is worth 3 full-year credits (1 credit per subject). The lesson plans are designed for the students to work independently the majority of the week, with a parent-student conference and discussion of topics covered on Fridays. You will need to add math and science to the curriculum (MFW recommends Saxon Math with DIVE CDs for math and Apologia Science) and may also want to consider adding foreign language, logic or other electives. For Bible and history, students will read through the Old Testament along with Taking the Old Testament Challenge. The Old Testament Readings are also central to the ancient history study along with Notgrass Exploring World History. Students will fill in an Ancient History Timeline Book to record events from their reading. There are comprehension questions, map work and service projects as well. In English, the focus is on essay writing, particularly the argumentative essay, and students will write five of these during the year. Literature from the periods covered is also read and analyzed from a Christian perspective. The Limited Edition Package includes Lesson Plans; Ancient Literature Supplement; Ancient History Timeline Book and figures; Daniel Inductive Bible Study for Teens; Unwrapping the Pharaohs; Student Bible Atlas; Exploring World History set; What On Earth Am I Here For?; The Odyssey; The Cat of Bubastes; Bulfinch's Greek and Roman Mythology; New Answers Book; The Iliad; Encyclopedia of the Ancient World; The Tabernacle; Eric Liddell; the Epic of Gilgamesh; Taking the Old Testament Challenge and Journey Through the Bible.

    In the quest to cover a little of everything from a particular time period AND present it at a level that a younger child can understand, most elementary history texts are, well, probably just a bit lacking in the exciting and shall we say “interesting” department. At least, I found it as such when I was much younger, although it led me to do a lot of self-reading to complete the picture in the areas that interested me. Susan Wise Bauer attempts to remedy this difficulty in presenting a chronological history to the younger set using a classical approach to history. The Story of the World is structured around a text and a curriculum guide/activity book that serve as a springboard for your futher history explorations. The readings in the text provide a background of the time period covered, augmented by the use of the guide, which contains review questions, suggestions for supplemental readings, appropriate literature selections, and also map activities, coloring pages, as well as an abundance of projects that span history, art, and science that are sure to excite the student.

    The text itself serves as the starting point and backbone of each unit. Each chapter covers a particular time period, and is placed in chronological order. For example, in Volume One: Ancient Times, Chapter One begins with “The Earliest People” followed by chapters detailing periods of Egyptian, Sumarian, Jewish, Babylonian, Assyrian, Indian, Chinese, African, Egyptian, Phoenician, Greek, Persian, Native American, Roman, Christian, Celt, and Barbarian history. The book goes in strictly chronological order, so one time period of a civilization will be covered, and then a different civilization may be covered, returning to another era of the first civilization later, to encompass a significant historical event of that civilization. Each chapter is further split into smaller, more bite-sized amounts that lend themselves well to a younger attention span. The chapters are presented at a level they will understand, but at the same time, find fairly absorbing. History is presented in more of a story-type format that they will appreciate, and the author emphasizes that the book is not intended to give a complete overview of the time period, but rather to give the student a chronological order of major events and an appreciation and understanding of different cultures while presenting it in a way that will foster an enthusiasm and enjoyment of the subject matter. For example, while not every ruler of a civilization may be named, along with major accomplishments, an overview of the period highlighting important events and rulers, along with details of how the people in the civilizations lived comprise the short chapters. Mythical stories as well as historical fiction-type passages about young children from different cultures are woven into the narrative to stimulate further interest. These almost story-type chapters are meant to be read aloud to younger children, or those with reading difficulty, while good readers and older children can read or take turns reading the chapters aloud.

    When a chapter has been completely read, you and the students then turn to the curriculum manual/actvitiy guide. At the beginning of each chapter in the guide, corresponding page references are given from four recommended supplements Kingfisher History Encyclopedia, The Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World, The Usborne Book of World History, and the Usborne Internet-Linked Encyclopedia of World History. These selections further flesh out the history lessons, particularly for those periods or civilizations where less supplemental reading is available. When all the chapter reading has been accomplished, the next order of business are the reading comprehension-type review questions for each chapter section. Following the questions, the student is asked to summarize the chapter in a few sentences. The author again stresses that important facts be included in this narrative, but not necessarily every single one. A few sample narrations are also supplied for each section. The student’s narrative is then written, illustrated with his/her favorite part of the lesson. The narratives can be collected and put into a loose-leaf binder, to create the student’s own world history. After these activities have been completed, a list of readings chosen to supplement and complement the history lesson are supplied, as well as a following list of corresponding literature suggestions to further flesh out the lesson, with books telling stories from that era. Author, publisher, copyright date, and a sentence summary of each book are given for ease in locating the book.

    Now for some real hands-on work! The activities commence with “Map Work,” where a map of the appropriate area is supplied, and the student identifies and marks pertinent areas, routes, and features. The geography section is normally followed by a coloring page, highlighting some aspect of the history lesson, or some other word activity. Finally, the chapter closes with a selection of projects to do to really “get into” the featured civilization or time period. These may be arts, crafts, writing, or science projects, or just fun supplemental activities. Most require only common household supplies and art supplies such as paints & paintbrushes, boxes, newspaper and waxed paper, self-drying clay, etc. Several projects are provided for each chapter, covering a wide range of activities. These could include anything from building your own hut to making your own cunieform tablets, mummifying a chicken, brick-making, baking an African or Greek feast, purple dye, an erupting volcano, an olympic wreath, a Native American sand painting, a Roman chariot, making paper, and LOTS more. When you’ve covered the chapter content as much as is desired, move on.

    While the breadth of activities and readings may seem overwhelming or time-consuming, keep in mind that not every suggested book needs to be read, and not every single project needs to be completed. (But Mom, can’t we embalm the chicken today?) Spend as much time in an era as suits the students, pacing yourself to cover everything that is of interest. The structure of the curriculum makes it especially easy and enjoyable to use with several children in this age range, although I’m sure the older kids would love to get into it too!

    Volume One was revised in 2006 and now features more illustrations, maps, several timelines and additional parent/teacher notes. The text is paperback, and the Curriculum Guide/Activity Book is a bound paperback. - 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.

    Enthusiastic users of Susan Wise Bauer’s Story of the World will be excited to rediscover the modern era, “From Victoria’s Empire to the End of the USSR.” Formatted similarly to the previous volumes in the series, the Modern Age text contains 42 chapters highlighting some of the major people, places and events in world history, from 1850 to 2000. Some highlights include: the Crimean war, the American Civil War, the Second Reich, the Japan’s Meiji restoration, the Suez canal, the Boers, Western expansion in the U.S., the Boxer Rebellion in China, the Mexican Revolution, the rise of Joseph Stalin, Hitler’s rise to power, the Holocaust, the Atom bomb, the partitioning of Palestine, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, Chernobyl, the end of Communism, and much more. As usual, students will get a “balanced” view of world history, with events from nearly every country in the world - not just Europe and the U.S. Each “story” from history is told in an exciting, readable way, which is sure to hold students’ attention - especially as they cover history in the not-too-distant past! The activity book is once again substantial and invaluable, containing both teacher and student portions. The parent’s pages feature review questions with answers, guidelines for an outlining exercise for the student, suggested further reading and literature tie-ins, map activities, and hands-on projects related to the topics covered in the text. As usual, the projects are very creative and I can definitely see kids getting excited about doing them - one of the activities for Chapter One definitely caught my eye! In this activity, kids will get to time themselves and compare “loading” two different “rifles” with cardboard tubes, homemade “cartridges,” and a few other kitchen materials! The parent’s portion for each chapter also features cross-references on the same topic to other resources, including the Kingfisher History Encyclopedia, the Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World, the Usborne Book of World History, the Usborne History of the 20th Century, and the Usborne Internet-Linked Encyclopedia. The student’s portion of the activity guide includes partial outlines for each chapter for them to finish, outline maps for map activities, worksheet activities, and timeline figures including world flags from each country’s independence or establishment. The tests and answers for this volume are bound into a paperback, 3-hole punched volume, and include tests and answers for each chapter. Once again, Susan Wise Bauer has put together a very exciting and multi-faceted history study that everyone will love!

    The text is now available in either paperback, hardcover, or spiral binding, for your convenience. The Activity Book is a bound paperback. - Jess

    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
