Author: Linda Lacour Hobar
$44.97
From Ancient Civilizations to the time of Christ, this work contains projects, quizzes, lessons and answer keys for grades 4 - 8.

This classical approach will help you see things like what was going on in the world while Moses was busy leading the Israelites and how God has orchestrated it all to bring about His complete plan.

Where most ancient studies encompass only Egypt, Greece, and Rome, The Mystery of History goes much farther.  In Volume I,  chronological based stories from all around the world are included.  Beginning with the Garden of Eden, stories will spread from Sumer and Babel to Troy, Phoenicia, and Assyria.  The study of early civilizations will include King Wu of China and Asoka of India as well as King David, Julius Caesar, and Xerxes of Persia.  Even North America is visited in this look at ancient peoples. 

Above all, a favorite feature of Volume I is the weaving of Bible history with world history.  In reality, it is all world history.  But for most of us, history has not been taught this way.  It has not been integrated.  In The Mystery of History, major stories are retold  from the Bible in the order that they happened alongside significant world history events and figures.  As an example, each one of the Old Testament prophets are given a biographical lesson near their contemporaries in old world history.    

More examples of interesting figures who lived just decades apart include:  Joshua and King Tut; Ruth and Helen of Troy; Daniel and Aesop; Ezekiel and Buddha; and Nehemiah and Socrates.  Imagine lining up such amazing figures on one master timeline!  Imagine learning their stories back to back in the order they happened!  For most of us, it’s an illuminating experience. A required resource is the Historical Atlas of the World from Rand McNally.

At the end of each lesson, there are activities created specifically for elementary, junior high, and high school users. The lessons are written at a 4th-8th grade level, so it is simple enough for young users to understand while still containing plenty of scholastic information for the older students. By choosing hands-on activities and projects that are appropriate for the student’s age, you could have a Kindergartener and High School student studying together!
