History for 2013-2014: Mystery of History Volume 2

Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure statement.

I loved history and social studies when I was in school. It’s no surprise then that history is one of my favorite subjects to teach. Last year we used Story of the World Volume 1. Jonathan like it and so did I, but I really wanted something that included more Biblical and church history in context with other historical events and people.

Mystery of History

That led me to Mystery of History and Bright Ideas Press. We studied Ancient History last year, so this year we’re moving on to early church history and the middle ages with Mystery of History Volume 2. I’m partnering with Bright Ideas Press this year to share with you tips and tricks for using Mystery of History with younger children as well as bringing you reviews on the various extras from Bright Ideas Press like coloring pages and notebooking pages that you can use with Mystery of History.

Since we are using a modular schedule this year, we just started history this week after doing a block of science. Jonathan did very well with the notebooking pages. I like the conversational tone of the writing and the amount of Scripture included.

    Oh my gosh!!! I absolutely love the year border on your notebook pages. I often make my own notebook pages and have never thought to do that. Ingenious! Hope you don’t mind me stealing it for my munchkin’s benefit!!! :)

    We are also doing Mystery of History Volume 2 this year. We completed volume 1 last year and loved it, so coming back for more! :)

    Is there a reason you went over from Story of the World to Mystery of History? I can’t seem to decide between the two…

    • “Last year we used Story of the World Volume 1. Jonathan like it and so did I, but I really wanted something that included more Biblical and church history in context with other historical events and people.”

      That’s why we switched. I have a check in coming soon for our first module.
