We have been using The Story of the World: History for the Classical Child this year & cannot express enough how much we love it!
Story of the World
It all started when we started reading about the Vikings over this past summer. The kids decided they wanted to learn more about them so this school year turned into ‘all things Medieval’. During my search, I came across The Story of the World: From the Fall of Rome to the Rise of the Renaissance. It was perfect!
We had already started our Viking unit before I came across this but that didn’t matter. We started at the beginning of the book which took us to the Fall of Rome. Besides the story book, they also have an activity book full of great crafts/projects, coloring pages, maps, & more to go along with each chapter! Check out our Ancient Rome unit here & here!
For J12, I use the test book. It has a test for all 42 chapters with the answers.
There are 4 volumes in the series, each listed below with the main text, activity book, & test book. You can choose between paperback, hardcover, audiobook CD, or Kindle eBook for the story book!
We all love history here & this has been so much fun that we plan on using each of the volumes. Actually, J12 has decided that she wants to branch off & learn more about the Victorian Era. I was able to find info on that in Vol.4 to put together a unit for her. You can find more info on that here.
