Category Description for Mystery of History:

This four-volume world history series provides students with a biblically-based and engaging overview of leading events and personalities from creation to the early 21st century. The series is chronological in structure while employing a number of classical education methods. Volume 1 examines Ancient History, Volume 2 the Middle Ages, Volume 3 the Renaissance, Reformation & Growth of Nations, while Volume 4 studies Revolutions to Rising Times (1708 - 2010). Each volume has from 28 to 36 weekly lessons. The essential resources at each level are the Student Text (Reader) and separate Companion Guide that includes research and writing exercises, map and timeline work, quarterly worksheets, tests and quizzes, and a wide variety of hands-on activities. The Guides are available, depending on the volume, in a print or CD/digital download format. Optional resources include audio versions of each text, as well as "super supplemental" CD's in PDF format that feature coloring pages, notebooking sheets and extra challenge/enrichment plans that can be printed at will.




Learning ancient history from a Bible-centered perspective is still the focus of the 3rd edition of Mystery of History, Vol. 1 However, with the 3rd edition, the format has been updated to be similar to Vol. IV. The biggest change is that it is changing from a paperback book to a hardcover with full color illustrations.  Short, interesting readings show 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? Historically accurate with better chronological detail based on the work of James Ussher, the book tells you who walked the earth when and helps put each life in perspective around important events that happened worldwide. Mapping exercises with answers and simplified timeline directions are included along with suggestions for fun activities. Quarterly reviews and semester tests are provided. All student materials is reproducible for family use. 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. Assignments are included for all grade levels.

Access to the Companion Guide is provided with a digital download code. This guide includes PDF files of all of the reproducible material from the text including pre-tests, quizzes, exercises, worksheets, activity instructions, tests, outline maps, resource lists, appendix pages and more. A print version will be released in 2019 as a separate item for those that prefer the print format.

Wanted to be able to print the maps and such from the text without contorting the book over my copier...Also heard there were other neat additions in there to print out...

When I received the text book for MOH, I knew I would need a different way to have worksheets for my daughter. I couldn't see myself trying to copy from the text, seeing how thick of a book it is. Purchasing this companion CD was the perfect solution.

Printing the quizzes and maps from the book is a pain. Pages have thick black edges and it is wasting ink. Worth the cost to be able to print nice copies.

To coincide God's Word with true History. It will help the children understand the Bible isn't "just stories"
Stefenie M on Aug 24, 2017
"I heard this history is written from a biblical perspective and that it covers history during the same time periods from all over the globe, showing how God is working in all of history at the same time!"

Wow! What an improvement on the CD's I have for the other volumes! It is much more user friendly.

Seems like it will be helpful to print directly from digital media rather than making photo copies.
Andrew S on Sep 1, 2016
I will be using Mystery of History for multiple age groups, therefor I will need the resources to print multiple copies.

I wanted to be able to just print from the computer and not have to copy out of the book as my copier doesn't always copy very clearly!
Greta H on Dec 18, 2015
I choose the CD version so I could print instead of copy and I could use it for multiple years.
Charlotte Y on Dec 7, 2015
I am not good at making worksheets etc. I thought it would be worth the time and expense to buy the reproducible cd instead.

Are the things in the Mystery of History companion guide also in the print edition of the volume?
A shopper on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, everything contained in the Mystery of History Companion Guide CD is also in the printed edition. The CD contains all the quizzes, tests, activity pages and maps, and they're PDF files of the book's pages so there is no difficulty finding page numbers when needed. The CD does not, however, contain timeline figures. For that, the author recommends History Through the Ages Historical Timeline Figures on CD. Many of the illustrations in the book are reproductions of these figures, but they're not all included so if you plan to use pre-made illustrations as timeline figures, I highly recommend getting that CD as well.

I have found it extremely helpful to have the Mystery of History Companion Guide CD, because the printed edition is 1.5" thick and it is often difficult to photocopy the pages. The CD is very well organized and it is very easy to find and print out just the pages I need for the day's lesson. While it isn't absolutely required, it is, in my opinion, definitely a worthwhile investment as part of this curriculum.
What reproducibles are included on the CD?
A shopper on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All of the quizzes, tests. The pre-test for each section and more. Maps. I borrowed the book from a friend and bought this CD to print off the activities for my kids. I am sure there is much more on the CD than I am telling you. Seemed like there was a wealth of information on there. More than we were able to use with the time we had. A great deal for the price and a valuable resource to go with the book. I would buy it again. My CD worked just fine, by the way, and I purchased it just one year ago.

Not much new!
I bought this Cd thinking it would be some additional printables that would really help our MOH journey. If you have more than one child, then it might be helpful...but only if you don't have a copy machine.
