Great Help in our "school"

I love this book. It has helped a lot for our history. My son is a very hands on person, so this book has help tremendously in this area. What we do is read a section of the book. Then I have him copy the narration ideas. After that we read one of the books that are suggested for further study. If there is a color page or activity that pertains to the lesson for that day we will also do this. I am using this for our history curriculum exclusively since everything is written out for us and all I have to do is copy a worksheet page or order a book from the library.

Great homeschooling tool....

We love this book! It has everything I could ask for in activities for our history studies (except someone else to teach it!) My daughter loves to do the map work and make crafts that correspond with her lessons!

A great resource

First the positive Each book in this series is a complete introduction to history within a certain time frame, for example this one is about the Middle Ages. You will have to add your own history book to go along with this, this is just the lesson plan/idea book. (Usorne History of the World would be one example of the type of history book you might buy). This book has a lot of ideas and activities in it all relating to the Middle Ages. There is cooking recipes, craft ideas, coloring pages, and so on. It is very comprehensive. The one Negative Comment. It is very big and very thick. A large part of this is because it gets into the very basic ideas that most people do not need help remembering. That is, it provides a list of questions for each subject and page read. The questions are very basic and many of them you could think of yourself. However, this would be helpful for a first time home school mother who is not sure where to start. Well worth the money. Enjoy.

The Story of the World Activity Book Two: The Middle Ages

I purchased the Activity Two Book because my son enjoyed the Activity One Book. This book is appropriate for Grades 1 through 4 and should be purchased "together" with The Story of the World Volume 2: The Middle Ages book. The activity book can be used in families with different-aged children. Each chapter includes a narration exercise, question and answer for oral and written review, cut-outs, coloring, maps, craft projects as well as a thorough list of suggested readings. There is something for everyone here to make learning history an enjoyable experience.

We love SOTW!

This is our second year using Story of the World as our history spine for my K and 4th grader. The activity guide is similar to Vol. 1, although the difficulty level of work has increased slightly. This guide is written for 2-5th graders. As in SOTW 1, this activity guide has review questions, sample narrations, additional reading suggestions, map work and hands on activities, with review cards every four chapters. What I love best about SOTW is that I can read the main story to my children and use this activity guide to pick and choose what *we* want to do with our history lesson. They provide the base, yet I have the flexibility to do what works best within our school. If we are interested in a subject, we can do more activities, or we can skip most and move on. I take the suggested reading lists to the library, where I can either choose from what's on hand, or I can find additional books on the same subject. I appreciate Susan Wise Bauer's notations on grade level appropriateness for the books, so I can know ahead of time if it's something my 10 yo can read on her own, or if it's something I'll be reading from to both of my kids. I generally ask review questions of both my children, then my 10 yo does the written narration and map work. Both kids do the coloring pages, and my younger child listens to some of our additional reading. Permission is given in the book to make copies of pages for a second child within your own family. This book is taking us longer than a year to complete, but that's because we are having a lot of fun with it. I am enjoying history as much as the kids. The activity guide is a marvelous addition to the base book, and I wouldn't want to do history in any other way. As commented in reviews of the Vol. 1 activity book, there are more typographical errors than one would expect. This is unfortunate, but I appreciate the effort made to get these books out as quickly as possible.
