  Mystery of History, Vol. 1
Jennifer of Oregon, 6/1/2009
I have 4 grades that I have had to try to teach effectively. MoH helped tailor ancient history into small chunks that each grade could appreciate. While it is not all-inclusive, I think it is great as a starting point, a simple historical survey, if you will. The timeline was a lot of fun for the kids to do; the notecards were just tedious.

I will be doing volume 2 next year for three of the children. My oldest is beginning jr. high and needs to focus on more details now.
