I love this curriculum I actually dreaded teaching ancient history because I thought it was boring But I started using this last year when my daughter was 6 and it was so much fun that my 4-and 2-year-olds loved listening in and participating in the projects I love that you are given a variety of activities so you can choose to do all of them or just the ones that fit your schedule or preferences I also love that at the end of each lesson is a suggested reading list We went to the library every week to check out more books about each lesson I never thought ancient history could be so enjoyable! I'm looking forward to the Middle Ages!

For secular homeschoolers that are interested in using a classically inspired history curriculum this is hands down the best option I love that I can use this curriculum as is without first having to go through and edit it History Odyssey is easy to use with the perfect mix of structure and freedom so that I can spend my limited planning time wisely I'm using this primarily with my oldest but my four year old loves joining in with us Both of my children have learned a great deal and history has quickly become their favorite subject Well worth the cost!

Not Much Bang for Your Buck
I purchased HO based on several glowing recommendations from co-op members. What none of them told me is this is a *guide*, not a curriculum. Several other recourses need to be purchased to make it "complete". For $36.95 (glad I didn't pay full price of $46!!), you get 58 LOOSE pages along with several maps. The pages are not bound, but are 3 hole punched so you can put them into a binder. For this price, I expected a bit more, being bound at the very least.

The excitement in this household over learning about Ancient History is contagious! History Odyssey's Level One Ancients curriculum has far surpassed my expectations And my 6 year old who once balked at the mere hint of a history lesson now asks to do his history work first There are several things that make this curriculum work so well:1) There are TONS of hands-on activities In fact there is a little something for every kind of child- Coloring painting dressing up building cooking creating If hands-on activities aren't for you there's plenty of good reading too!2) There's really not much the parents need to do to prepare except gather the optional reading resources from the library at the appropriate times and make sure they've got the supplies for the chosen hands on activitiesThe guide has each lesson planned out for you- complete with recommended optional reading and optional enrichment activities3) The quality of the written materials is outstanding The Usborne Internet Linked Encyclopedia of World History is colorful comprehensive and engaging (and the best part is that it is used in all the subsequent levels so it's one less future purchase!) Story of the World is a fantastic way to present history to children in a way that is relevant to them and the History Pockets book provides great reinforcement and review of the information presented in the readingsIf you're following the classical education model this follows the recommended sequence perfectly And even if you are not History Odyssey is one of the best history programs I've seen yet!

I was looking into book shark curriculum and was wanting to try it out. However, price tag was out of reach for us right now. So I did some research and i noticed a lot of their curriculum are based out of books that Odessy uses. So i decided to try the History Odessy. The only cons is that i will still have to do the planning.
