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.

These tests are a great way to ensure that the material that has been studied is getting absorbed. The Tests within each book level increase in complexity. Which is a great way to challenge your kids. I recommend these test books to go along with the text book and the activity book.
The review questions were great in the activity book but we were feeling like we were missing a "worksheet" for her to have after we read a chapter to test her comprehension of the material. Our daughter is a worksheet girl. This is exactly what we were needing, wish it was part of the activity book however!
We love this book and my son does to! We usually spend a few days reading the chapter then we spend the next couple days going over the review questions and most them time he remembers what we have read! This Is a great product and I will be buying book 2!
This is the second year we are using the Story of the World for our history. We're using it with our first and third graders. My third grader is able to answer most of the questions, but the tests are much too detailed for my first grader. I would suggest them to be used for third grade and up. The questions are quite detailed and we mostly use them to review the information. We generally do about four days of reading and do the correlating test on the fifth day.
These tests are a wonderful way to give an objective grade for a high-school transcript. I am currently taking a high-schooler through an accelerated tour of world history via Story of the World. She is in volume 2, and after reading, studying questions from the Activity Guide, and placing events on a timeline, she takes the chapter's test.
We haven't' done much testing before, so this is a perfect way to help my daughter learn test-taking skills.
