"If you are looking for a multi-level Bible based history curriculum that doesn't separate church history from state history, then you will be pleased
with Mystery of History!" Harriet Yoder, Lamp Post Homeschool Store
5/05 I started using it with our three 7 to 11 year old sons last fall. I read the lesson aloud and do some (though not all) of the projects with the older two
(the middle one is 9 years old). We are about half way through the text (taking longer because I supplemented with some ancient history videos--like you would
get from the library). I plan to take a few weeks to do the timeline activities (instead of doing that with each lesson). It is just easier
for us to do one
major thing at a time and do it really well!
The author says on the back of the text that it was written primarily for gr. 4 to 8 but that it is adaptable for older and younger students. I think you will appreciate having all your
homeschool children on the same page in at least one subject.
