We have been using History Odyssey for 3 years now and we really enjoy it The lessons are clear and easy to follow My kids really enjoy some of the projects as well as the internet links I have found that there is more parent preparation in the Ancient History and Middle Ages (both level 1) than there is for Early Modern (level 1) although the preparation is mostly gathering craft supplies I use it simultaneously for my 4th grade daughter and my 2nd grade son and it works well History Odyssey is not written from a christian perspective and is a thorough easy to use program I highly recommend it

I originally purchased this curriculum because it seemed to teach organizational and outlining skills as well as provide interesting history projects I had hoped my 6th grade daughter could do much of it on her own because she had such great reading skills Unfortunately the course has proven difficult to useI have found the level 2 Middle Ages Curriculum very time consuming Some of the information was hard to find The books indicated in some cases were out of date We have spent much time searching for names of persons monastic orders etc on the internet The author gives a 2 hour time frame to complete each lesson In reality it has taken my daughter up to 4 hours to complete each lesson with some lessons taking even longer Some lessons required extended research such as the biography of Charlemagne This required days of work instead of hours The only way we could get through all of the material is to continue into the next school year My daughter has had to redo many of the writing assignments as well because she has needed so much help which I cannot always provideBecause developing a Christian worldview in my children is the main reason for my homeschooling I have had to supplement the materials with a Christian history text and books about the lives of the church fathers This has made getting through the course even more time consuming This course has completely overwhelmed me as I attempt to school 4 other children manage a toddler and coming this summer a newborn Though my daughter seems to enjoy the course I have been disappointed in it
