    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 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.

    Activity Book

    This is the best part about the Story of the World curriculum. We are currently taking a break from using it as my son is struggling to learn from it right now, but it helps him learn more than the textbook.

    Great Companion

    This is a must have in my opinion. It is filled with review questions and map worksheets. It also has great reading suggestions to continue the learning or literature that takes place in the time period. As well as, several project ideas. All of these have re amended grade or age level. Which can help if you are teaching multiple ages, like me.

    Still not sold...

    I am still not sold on this set. My daughter is on her second year of this series. My son is just beginning. I'm going to see how the rest of the school year goes for them, but if it doesn't get better soon, we're going to find an alternative for this subject. I am also not completely sure that it's age appropriate. Certainly, the text is much too difficult for their ages.

    NOT for Us!

    This program was too dull to captivate my children. I liked the map work and coloring pages in the student activity book, but didn't find a single activity to be worth our time. They all seemed too complicated, and too tangentially related to make them worth the effort.

    The Story of the World Volume 1 Activity Book

    These are WONDERFUL activities for my seven year old to reinforce the main points of each chapter. She really looks forward to map work and the coloring pages. I love that her interest in geography has really blossomed thanks to this. The questions to ask are straight and to the point and there is all kinds of extra resources you can look into if your student shows interest in a particular chapter. I would recommend it.
