A must-have companion Jul 19, 2008
This is a must-have for going through the Story of the World series. My favorite part is the "continued reading" recommendations. I'd suggest not trying to do all the activities. We started out that way and it was taking forever.
I do have her do the map exercises for every chapter and try to read at least one of the recommended books (often a fairy tale/myth/legend picture book about that time/culture). When she's very interested in a chapter, we'll spend more time and do a project or two and read more of the books.
Great Resource!! May 25, 2008
This book series is the perfect balance between a scripted, rigid history program and a completely unstructured approach to teaching history. I use it in a homeschooling history coop group with 6 girls, age 5-8. We have a great time. I use the study questions, we fill out the map, and then we do a craft. We enjoyed forming the Nile river with dirt and rocks, building an "ancient home" structure in the back yard, and creating hieroglyphics in clay. I like a lot of the books she recommends as supplements. We use the coloring pictures to add to our timeline we are creating that encircles our homeschooling room. The coloring pictures are simple, but I think thats better for boys who sometimes are not into detailed coloring. I purchased some extra coloring books for my daughter who loves to color. Finally, I am a devoted Christian who appreciates the flexibilty to add biblical content as I see fit.
Captivating Apr 28, 2008
We have tried several hs history curricula and this is the first one that has captivated my children. I would highly recommend this!
Check for accuracy Apr 15, 2008
Overall, this is an excellent resource, but there are some inaccuracies. I still recommend it, just examine maps carefully. Ninevah is on the wrong side of the Tigris river on two maps. We aren't finished either, so it is possible there may be more errors.
Great homeschool resource Mar 18, 2008
Love these books. Don't buy just the textbook and not the activity. Its worth it. Only thing that would be nice would be if the pages to copy were preforated for easy pullout. Otherwise, no complaints!
