What's new in the 2nd Edition?
According to the author, the message and theme of the book remain the same and the well-loved, user friendly format has not been changed (one paperback book contains everything for student and teacher alike). But, with over 140 new pages in the Second Edition, Linda Hobar has enriched the lessons; broadened the scholarship level of the text; developed new activities; enhanced the mapping exercises; and simplified the timeline directions. While not changing the Table of Contents, the author has improved it with better chronological detail, based on the work of James Ussher. The Second Edition also features a cleaner, more-readable layout, with upgraded artistry, photos, font, and cover; an expanded reading list; Answer Key maps for all the mapping exercises; a pronunciation guide; a Bible reading list; and much more. Now, as before, The Mystery of History Volume I
, can be an inspirational journey blending Bible history and world history into one fascinating and beautiful mosaic.From the producers of Mystery of History:
After each and every lesson in The Mystery of History, students are given several optional “Activities” for Younger Students (K – 3rd), Middle Students (4th – 8th), and Older Students (9th – 12th) that will range from fun, hands-on crafts and games to stimulating research projects. While the entire family can read or listen to the same history lessons together (or individually on their own), what students will do with the lessons, or what they will absorb from the lessons, will vary widely by their maturity, skill level, and learning style.
Each Volume increases in difficulty through content, length, and reading level. This means that while Volume I starts at about a 3rd – 4th grade reading level, Volume II moves to a 5th – 6th grade reading level, Volume III advances to a 7th – 8th grade reading level, and Volume IV jumps to a 9th – 10th grade reading level. However, the lessons in Volume IV, which are longer in length and heavier in theme, will be too advanced for some children and will require some screening and skipping. Some families may in fact choose to reserve Volume IV for high school as a world history credit. Whenever you use Volume IV, parents and teachers can decide when to proceed and when to pull back on some of the more gruesome aspects of modern history. And for those who will have younger ones sitting in with older siblings (as is common in homeschooling), there are Younger and Middle Activities to keep students involved on an age appropriate level. As in all matters of parenting and teaching, please use discretion based on the needs and abilities of your students!Mystery of History Volume I – Creation to the Resurrection Sample Weeks/LessonsMystery of History Volume I – Creation to the Resurrection Sample Pagess
