Story of the World vol. 1 and History Through the Ages

We have fallen in love with the Story of the World history books. The writing style is so engaging and it appeals to the youngest and the oldest in our home and everybody in between. It is not what my high schoolers are using for history, but they still enjoy sitting and listening while I read to the younger children.

I also love the History Through the Ages timelines by Homeschool in the Woods. And I want to use them with Story of the World. Mystery of History includes what timeline pieces correspond with the chapters, but I haven’t found a comprehensive list for Story of the World, so I am working my way through the volumes and creating my own list.

Here is the list for volume 1. If you have suggestions to update, I’d love to know them as I’m afraid I missed some.

Note: The ones that are in italics are not in the History Through the Ages set. I have managed to find some of these online, and had to skip some.

  • We love Story of the World, but my kids have been too small to handle a timeline project. Until now. Thanks for the suggestions. I remember looking at the timeline notebook a few years back and thinking how beautiful it would be. This post was just what I needed to make a purchase. :)
