Great as always

I haven't used this but it looks great. I love The Story of The World!

Excellent book for grade 4 and up

To everyone who is whining that this book is not geared for younger children: IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE FOR YOUNGER KIDS! Ms. Bauer clearly spells out her philosophy that history should be taught in the order that events occur. This book offers lots of literature suggestions for the slightly older student as well as the opportunity to begin practicing outlining as a study technique. As with all the previous activity guides this includes guided response questions for comprehension assessment. For those who want a "unit studies" approach that they can use for multiple grade levels at once, please look elswewhere. This subject matter does not work well with that approach.

Just what we were looking for!

This activity book looks to be exactly right for my son who will be in fourth grade and nine -years-old. He is excited about switching from summaries to the outlines and we all love the maps. You just can't have too many maps in a book, at least in this house you can't. I can see that if you have not been following the Well Trained Mind suggestions in having your child write detailed 6-10 sentence summaries, then the writing might be overwhelming, but I think it is the perfect next step for those of us who have. Compared to the suggested summaries for the third volume of the series, I was pleased that the emphasis for Volume Four seems to be on organization of writing rather than volume.

More tools...

I didn't think I'd be as happy with this book as I was with Vols. 2 & 3, but even though the reading lists aren't as extensive, I'm thrilled with the timeline cards & PRONUNCIATION GUIDE! If they were in the other volumes, I missed them. It's such a great idea to have the pronunciation guide when you read aloud! My DD9 will learn how to relate historical events so much better using the timeline cards as well. Can't WAIT to get going!


This book has been very helpful in planning a history curriculum. Other reviewers are correct the ditto portion you can copy is mainly maps. It is also a bit weaker than the other books in this group. However, despite those two complaints, this is a very useful book when planning curriculum for a homeschool student. There are discussion topics, craft ideas and more.
