This is the most incredible history program I have seen It makes me wish I was in 1st grade again I have 3 boys ages 2 4 and 6 - one is auditory one is visual and one is a hands-on learner I use the book and activity notebook for all three of them at once Today we did the archaeological dig Donned with shovels screens and buckets they all fell in love with history and school (they were in awe of the fact that mom actually told them to dig in the dirt and it was school work) They all learned more than I hoped for - not that many 2 year olds can successfully pronounce the word archaeologist and know what it means I love that you can do as little or as much as you want with these books without feeling like you are going to miss something you will need to know for later on I decided to choose one project per week and decided those ahead of time I pulled all the supplies needed for the entire year and boxed it up It is so clear what we will need that this completely stream-lined my year making it a joy Every week I cannot wait until Activity Day and that excitement gets my boys excited about school I am getting more than my money's worth on this one!
August 29, 2007
We used Activity Book #1 along with Story of the World Vol 1 You'll notice the Activity Book is about twice the price of the Story of the World text But it is loaded with hands-on ideas for bringing the historical material from the textbook alive You will find narration questions supplementary literature and history book recommendations for each chapter studied recipes games coloring pages and the maps that you'll need for studying the geography presented in each lesson My son loved the archeology dig and cuneiform writing in clay There are more activities listed in the Activity Book than most people can probably use but it's nice to have choices You could certainly use Story of the World alone but I consider the Activity Book a vital supplement that cuts down on a great deal of the teacher prep

My kids 1st & 2nd grade LOVED this program! Their favorite thing we did in school this year was study the Ancient Greeks! It was fun to be able to study history/geography together with different age groups- especially with one reading well and one just starting to read I found the activity book very helpful The kids loved the craft suggestions and books They loved to hear the narration The coloring pages/ fun pages were also a great activity though I found some things like crossword puzzles didn't really appeal to my 1st grader yet I found that we did history about 2-3 times a week and that was enough to get our book done I also supplemented with some videos/documentaries and kid-friendly websites such a a Jim Henson's Muppet Theater of Greek Myths & Legends from Netflix How awesome was it the night we started watching a PBS documentary about the demise of the Ancient Minoans and my kids knew all about the geography of Crete and Greece My husband was stunned that they knew the subject so well And imagine my delight when my 2nd grader asked if I thought Hammurabi or Alexander the Great were the greater influence on the world I wish I could find more of the literature recommended in my public library but it's not a very big library Also my 1st grader has a very short attention span with a low level of frustration when it comes to concentration My 2nd gr son is a quick self-guided learner They both loved this series and comprehended it well We didn't even use the tests though we may as they get older We also set up some of their projects for grandparents to see as they were very proud of their work and loved to talk about everything they learned As a history lover myself I found that it was very good not just at the boring dates and facts but it showing how one civilization or event or person influenced or paved the way for others which is such an important part of understanding history And it is easy to teach Read the narration which is divided into short sections pick which activities and literature you want to do color the pages and supplement with a few good resources and your kids can really understand history even if it wasn't your favorite subject Highly recommended!

Great history curriculum
Our kids love Story of the World. We finally bought the text after listening to the audio CDs on multiple road trips, etc. We use the activity guide for history group activities, within copyright parameters. I love that the focus is on the who, where and why of historical events without hammering in specific dates. Stories stick with us. Dates can be referenced if needed, or put on a home timeline.

The SOTW history program delivers! My dd LOVES history and because of Story Of The World wants to be an archaeologist when she grows up SOTW is a wonderful history program to use and would be SO EASY to use with multiple students at once Because it reads like a story it keeps kids interested every step of the way Even my 2 yo will climb up on the couch and listen to the story The activity book is wonderful for my 1st grader She enjoys the coloring and other activities This is also a curriculum guide which is a must as it has lists of additional books to pick up from the library The library books are a huge help in cementing what you've learned The additional activities listed in the guide are a lot of fun too No prep time is required by you unless you want to get the supplemental books from the library This curriculum would be SO EASY to use with multiple students at once No one can believe how much my dd knows about Ancient Egypt she stumped adults with her trivia questions! The SOTW text and curriculum/activity book are my favorite purchases of the year! I feel this is the best history program out there

I used this program with my 7 year old daughter She has thoroughly enjoyed it and shares her knowledge of Mesopotamia Egypt and the Roman Empire with all our dinner guests During free time she often incorporates her new knowledge into her pretend play with her younger brother as they sail down the Nile River (our hallway) or dress up as Spartan warriors The SOTW activity book is easy to use Information is laid out for well for ease of use during a lesson We found the maps and coloring pages to be beneficial in solidifying the lesson in my daughter's mind Most of the activities did not seem to me to be beneficial in proportion to their time and effort Of the ones we did try the directions were not very clear The library in our area is not worth mentioning so the supplemental book list included was not helpful to me Susan Wise Bauer calls this text a spine that is meant to be supplemented We have very easily incorporated Bible and Church history into this course with the use of a children's Bible and "Peril and Peace" of the History Lives series We are very much looking forward to volume 2

We are using the Story of the World Volume 1 Activity book again this year We thoroughly enjoyed it when my son was in first grade We did all of the maps and review questions chose some of the suggested supplemental readings from the library and did the activities that caught our fancy Now that my son is in fifth grade we are able to enjoy some of the more advanced books and activities while still using the maps and easier book suggestions with my kindergartener There's something for everyone! While my son puts together a model my daughter colors and cuts out paper dolls

I'd like to get the SOTW books to read with all my children (ages 8,7, 4 and 3). Of course the older kids will understand it better than the younger ones, but I'm okay with that. My question is, will one activity book suffice for the family, or would we need one activity book for each child involved?
A shopper on May 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Our family uses one activity book for our 3 kids (ages 6, 7 & 9) and our friend's two children (ages 4 & 7). The one book serves us just fine for ideas and crafts, etc without violating copyright laws, etc. I don't think more than one book is necessary for one home educating family. If using the pages for personal use in one family it's permissible to use a copier to xerox maps, coloring pages, etc. We love Story of the World! I also really recommend the audio CDs. It's easy to pop those in when we're driving around and then the understanding and application is pretty effortless afterwards. And Jim Weiss is the narrator and he is a wonderful reader.
Is this curriculum sufficient and suitable for high school world history? If not, can anyone recommend a Christian based world history curriculum? Thank you.
A shopper on Jun 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Susan Wise Bauer has written an upper level (grades 7-12) book for the same time period - History of the Ancient World - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=041239

There is a companion study guide to this book - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=012354&subject=History%2FGeography/14&category=History+of+the+Ancient+World/10483

These are definitely sufficient and suitable for a high school Ancient World History course.

There are similar books for other time periods: Medieval World - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=018010Medieval World Study Guide - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=059917Renaissance World - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=008616

Story of the World Vol. 1 2nd Edition: Ancient Times (Paperback)
BEST ANSWER: Hello,
I am using the Story of the World series to teach Ancient History at a homeschool co-op. Some of my students have the original and some have the revised books. Since some of the families had already owned the book, I have tried to make adjustments when needed so that the families did not have to buy a new edition. So far, most of the content is the same with an infrequent difference in a map between the editions. I don't see it necessary to upgrade. Have a great night.

    It accompanies the series well but the activity sheets are really not differentiated for whole family use.

    SOTW Volume 1 Activity Book came highly recommended by other users so we decided to give it a try with the SOTW Volume 1 Book

    I needed this to go with the main book I have. I've been using them for the past few years starting with Vol. 2.

    I had heard good things from those who used this curriculum and wanted to assistance with reviewing the material.

    I'd like to get the SOTW books to read with all my children (ages 8,7, 4 and 3). Of course the older kids will understand it better than the younger ones, but I'm okay with that. My question is, will one activity book suffice for the family, or would we need one activity book for each child involved?

    BEST ANSWER: Our family uses one activity book for our 3 kids (ages 6, 7 & 9) and our friend's two children (ages 4 & 7). The one book serves us just fine for ideas and crafts, etc without violating copyright laws, etc. I don't think more than one book is necessary for one home educating family. If using the pages for personal use in one family it's permissible to use a copier to xerox maps, coloring pages, etc. We love Story of the World! I also really recommend the audio CDs. It's easy to pop those in when we're driving around and then the understanding and application is pretty effortless afterwards. And Jim Weiss is the narrator and he is a wonderful reader.
    Is this curriculum sufficient and suitable for high school world history? If not, can anyone recommend a Christian based world history curriculum? Thank you.

    BEST ANSWER: Susan Wise Bauer has written an upper level (grades 7-12) book for the same time period - History of the Ancient World - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=041239

    There is a companion study guide to this book - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=012354&subject=History%2FGeography/14&category=History+of+the+Ancient+World/10483

    These are definitely sufficient and suitable for a high school Ancient World History course.

    There are similar books for other time periods: Medieval World - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=018010Medieval World Study Guide - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=059917Renaissance World - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=008616
    What is the difference between the revised edition and the older edition? I have the older one and would like to know if I really need to upgrade. Thanks for your time.

    BEST ANSWER: Hello,
    I am using the Story of the World series to teach Ancient History at a homeschool co-op. Some of my students have the original and some have the revised books. Since some of the families had already owned the book, I have tried to make adjustments when needed so that the families did not have to buy a new edition. So far, most of the content is the same with an infrequent difference in a map between the editions. I don't see it necessary to upgrade. Have a great night.
