I am thrilled to partner with Linda Lacour Hobar, author of The Mystery of History (our very favorite homeschooling curriculum), to bring you a FREEBIE and a chance to win a full best-seller bundle of The Mystery of History with all sorts of supplements to enhance the curriculum.
In our entire homeschooling journey of 12+ years we have only ever used one curriculum from start to finish, and you guessed it – it was The Mystery of History. We plan to cycle through it for a second time this coming fall and I am looking forward to introducing my youngest to world history the way it should be taught to everyone!
Scroll to the bottom for a FREEBIE from The Mystery of History!
The Mystery of History is a complete, chronological homeschool world history curriculum with a Christian worldview. Written in a conversational tone, it has been a favorite of homeschooling families for over a decade, including ours!
I never enjoyed or learned anything in the public school system about world history. When I taught it to our oldest using The Mystery of History, she was in 5th grade and it was all new for me too. I wasn’t excited about teaching history, I was actually dreading it, because I thought it would be just like I remember – dry and boring.
I was in for a treat though, because this was not what I remembered history to be like. It was written in such a way that I even remember my daughter requesting to read the next lesson right after the first one. They were that interesting and written in a way that was more like a conversation – like a living book. I had no idea what a “living book” was back then, but I sure knew it made history come alive for me as well as my daughter.
When we started using The Mystery of History there were only three volumes. We did all three and moved on to teaching American history for eighth grade. During her eighth grade school year we learned that volume IV was scheduled for release before the next school year, which made us both pleased. It did not disappoint!
If you have been looking for a complete world history homeschool curriculum to use with your children that:
- is written from a biblical worldview
- is chronological from the start of Creation
- weaves in Christian history alongside happenings around the world – for example you will learn about Joshua (1451 BC) and King Tut (1333 BC) back-to-back
- doesn’t shy away from teaching the secular parts of history (from a Christian worldview)
- reads more like a storybook or conversation than a dry textbook
- can be used with all ages K-12
- has the flexibility to use it with all your children at the same time
- allows you to do as much – or as little extra activities and worksheets, quizzes, mapping etc. as you want in your homeschool
- offers options for notebooking, coloring pages, lapbooks (folderbooks), challenge cards, audiobooks, and more
Then I cannot recommend The Mystery of History enough! Try it and you will not be disappointed.
