About The Story Of The World series:

Easy-To-Implement Captivating Chronological History
This captivating read-aloud series will introduce your children to the marvelous history of the world presented chronologically from the beginning of time. Each volume of The Story of the World includes the details of battles, kingdoms, cultures, and customs from every continent and major people group woven together into a story that children will find mesmerizing. With short chapters, many less than seven pages, The Story of the World presents history in small, easily-digestible chunks. Of particular appeal to children will be the occasional story about a hypothetical child in the culture of that time and fictional stories that were popular during that time.

The Best History Books Available for 1st-6th Grade!
The Story of the World is intended to be a read-aloud program for the first-through sixth-grade, but it can work equally well as independent reading by an older child. Don't restrict your scope of history to just American History. These are what we consider the best world history books for this age group. If you have ever found history to be dull and humdrum, these books might just change that opinion!

Combine with the Hands-On Student Activity Book for a full Curriculum
The Curriculum/Activity Guide offers parents and teachers a complete history curriculum for use with The Story of the World. In addition to extensive reading lists and cross-references to the most common illustrated encyclopedias, the Activity Book contains comprehension questions, sample narrations, maps, coloring pages, and activities for each chapter in The Story of the World. Children and parent-teachers love the activities, which range from coloring pages and games to mummifying a chicken!

Attempts to Include All Significant Historical and Cultural Accounts
Note: Please do not consider this series a Providential view of history which recognizes God's hand in history. It is first and foremost a history text that attempts to include all significant historical and cultural accounts. If you are a conservative Christian, you may want to opt out of a couple of activities. And where you find details with Biblical references that are inaccurate because of sparseness, use this opportunity to interject more of His story. Bible history is best taught with a Bible so we encourage your family to read through the Bible every year. These are very minor issues that are easily addressed and shouldn't keep you from this overall excellent program.

This is a great program and a wonderful way to help the information get fully absorbed. With each level the types and complexity of the questions change. Which I find helps to challenge my kids. I also like how the sections of the tests are grouped together. This make it easier for me decide the right section or sections I need for each one of my kids. I have recommended this whole series to every person I come across who is thinking of home schooling or is just starting to home school.

a great method of evaluation.

We are using these tests this year, and find they are a nice way to see how much the children are retaining. To switch it up a bit, i'll alternate between giving the children a test from this book or having them do narrations and comprehension questions from the activity book. It keeps things fresh and is a great way to make sure that the knowledge is "sticking"
