Mystery of History

Friday, December 17, 2010

A few weeks ago a friend of mine loaned me her copy of Mystery of History Volume 3.  For the elementary and Jr. High years we use Biblioplan for history. Biblioplan is really just a reading plan that uses Story of the World, Greenleaf Guides and some history encyclopedias.  I had noticed that Mystery of History was scheduled with Biblioplan, but I really thought, "Do I need another history program or book?" Well, I have to say that I will be ordering volume three!  We borrowed my friend's copy for one week and were hooked!  I love the way it is written from a Christian perspective!  There are also more connections that are did you know that King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella had a daughter (Catherine of Aragon) who married Henry VIII and that their daughter was Bloody Mary?  I had never made the connection!

These books (volumes one through three) will be valuable for us in high school, too.  I am planning on using TRISMS with Zach next year and he can use Mystery of History to do his research.

I am only bummed that the last volume isn't out yet, and that is the part of history that we will be entering into sometime next year.

So if you are looking for a history curriuculum from a Christian perspective you might want to check out Mystery of History!
