Publisher Description:

The Mystery of History Companion Guide, Volume I is the perfect companion to The Mystery of History, Volume I. It includes everything from the print edition of the book except the lesson text. Inside, you will find a wealth of activities, teaching helps, and reproducibles, all neatly organized at your fingertips. We’ve done the preparation for you, including: memory card ideas, Wall-of-Fame timeline suggestions, grading helps, a supplemental book list, Bible reading list, answer keys, and more!

For each lesson you will find a pre-test, review points, and quizzes. Hands-on and research activities (tailored to younger, middle, and older students) include writing prompts, memory card activities, mapping, Biblical correlation, and craft ideas. These activities will take your students learning and critical thinking to deeper level and perhaps yours, as you discover together!

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 early 2020 as a separate item for those that prefer the print format.

We had given our MOH volume 1 curriculum to friends on the mission field and need to repurchase. I used it with our older children who are now in college and will be using it with our youngest two who are going into 4th and 6th grades. We LOVE this history curriculum and are very excited!
