Story of the World vol. 2 and History Through the Ages

I have already shared that we love  Story of the World history books and History Through the Ages timelines by Homeschool in the Woods. (See post about Story of the World, vol. 1) I am working my way through compiling lists of what timeline pieces correspond with which chapters from Story of the World.

Here is the list for volume 2. If you have suggestions to update, please let me know.

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. MOH 3 Additional Figures Set is an add-on set that goes with Mystery of History, volume 3 that can be purchased for $2.95 and downloaded from Homeschool in the Woods. (Scroll to almost the bottom of the page, if you follow my link.) World Geography Timeline Figures are timeline figures by Amy Pak that are sold by Heart of Dakota.

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.

Albert Einstein

Learning about Albert Einstein is one of the assignments in the Noeo Physics 1 curriculum. The book that comes with the curriculum is Did it Take Creativity to Find Relativity, Albert Einstein? Unfortunately, we found the book to be too dry, so decided to find a different one. Since we wanted to start reading right that minute, we went for a kindle book. We chose the book Who Was Albert Einstein? This book had 106 reviews with the average being 5 stars, so I figured it was a safe bet. Indeed it was. For a short fun read on Albert Einstein, this book was a great pick. Perhaps it was a bit more history and less science than the previous book, but I really don’t think that my third grader needs to understand relativity or E=mc2 too thoroughly, and he definitely enjoyed the history. He was most intrigued that Einstein’s theory of mass to energy conversion played a pivotal roll in the atomic bomb creation, and that Einstein petitioned Roosevelt to develop the atomic bomb, but was an avowed pacifist.

Ace did a notebook page (front and back) on Einstein.

Everything was narrated by Ace and I wrote it out for him. The top picture is just his overall report on what we read. The inside of the compass mini book is about how a compass that was gifted to Albert when he was young sparked his love of science. The orange mini book is about the atomic bomb. The cover is a drawing of a mushroom cloud by Ace.

George Washington Carver

  

Ace has fallen in love with audiobooks. Can’t blame him, I rather love them myself. It allows for him to “read” books that are considerably beyond his reading level, without my having to sit down. Of course, I still take time to sit and read, but the boy has been listening to audiobooks for hours a day, and I can’t read to him for several hours a day, unfortunately.

Last week he listened to the book Man’s Slave Becomes God’s Scientist: George Washington Carver. He loved it! George Washington Carver is just every boy’s best friend. After all, he escaped kidnapping; he got beat up and lived to tell about it; he was smarter than his teachers; and he loved dirt and bugs and all those boy kinds of things. That all aside, he makes for a worthy hero, so I love for my boys to admire worthy heroes. And he loved school, which is not a bad thing to encourage boys to love. (I said “boys” because actually others of us enjoyed the book, because we couldn’t escape it as it was being played over speakers loud enough for all of us to not be able to ignore, but fortunately we were all hooked.)

This was a total rabbit trail, and has nothing to do with any of our curriculum, but while we were on a role, we also checked out a book about George Washington Carver for younger kids: A Weed Is a Flower : The Life of George Washington Carver by Aliki and read that. That is a super well illustrated little book that I had read to my older kids once upon a time, and just had to read it again.

Rabbit trail or no, Ace did a notebook page about George Washington Carver and if you ask him to tell you stories, you’d better sit down because it’s going to take awhile. Here are a few of pictures.

Leif Erickson Lapbook

My third grader and I are doing the Early American History Study by Beautiful Feet. We just finished our first unit in the guide—Leif Erikson. We read the book, Leif the Lucky through two or three times, just because we enjoyed it so much. It’s not only well written, but has great illustrations, and that makes a book a win-win for an early elementary student. We also had lots of fun researching online about Vikings and Native Americans that Leif may have met.

Leif the Lucky

And, of course, Ace thought that being Leif Erikson was one of the best parts of the unit.

Ace The Viking

Ace made a lapbook to show some of the things that he learned about Leif Erikson. Here are a few pictures.

So far so good, as far as the Beautiful Feet Guide. What a nice pick of books they have made for this age group. Next comes Columbus, but first we are working on finishing up a science project.

“Origins” Lapbook by Ace (Age 8)

Here is the third and last lapbook on Origins. This one is by Ace.

If you’d like to see the sources that we used for these mini-books please see my previous post. All of the writing in this lapbook was dictated to me by Ace, but he did all the fancy designing and coloring in his lapbook. He also completely designed his Creation Days Wheel.

“Origins” Lapbook by Zippy (Age 14)

I decided that I’m going to share one lapbook a day from our origins study. We will start with my oldest’s lap book.

As you can see, washi tape was popular for this project. You will see it on all three lapbooks. The kids said they won’t use it again because it curls so bad, but it’s pretty this time.

I did have sources on hand for most of these mini books in this lapbook. Our sources were: Old Testament Activity Pak by Homeschool in the Woods, Creation Science Lapbook by In the Hands of a Child, and Binder-Builder by A Journey Through Learning for Truth Quest History Beginnings Guide. I had all of these before we did this study, so we picked and chose from all three. Zippy designed her own cover and also her own Creation Days Wheel.

(I see a few grammatical and spelling errors in these pictures that we missed. Guess we’ll have to go fix those.)

How It All Began Unit

We recently finished a unit on how life began. We had been studying ancient history for awhile, but had skipped over the prehistory sections, but I decided that for my older two children, in particular, it was time to address the theory of evolution. So we backed up and discussed some of the early chapters in our ancient history books. To be fair, I am a staunch Young Earth Creationist, so that did influence the course of our study. I suppose it was actually the study of evolution from the creationist viewpoint. I want my children to realize that evidence for the stories of Creation and The Flood are not only found in the Bible but in other ancient documents and that there is evidence for them in some scientific studies.

Here is a list of the sources that we used:
Origins Study Books & DVD

The Usborne Encyclopedia of the Ancient World: Internet Linked (History Encyclopedias) (This is a secular history book.)

Streams of Civilization: Earliest Times to the Discovery of the New World (Vol 1) (79555) (The first chapter deals with different ideas of origin.)

Beginnings (Creation/Old Testament/Ancients/Egypt) (I love all of the other Truth Quest History Books that I’ve used, but this one is not my favorite. But I’m still using the parts that I like out of it, since I have it.)

The Great Dinosaur Mystery Video (Watch online for free.)

Creation vs Evolution by Terry McComb (DVD)

After we studied about origins from these sources, my three oldest children worked on lap books to show what they had learned. They all did a beautiful job on each lap book, but I plan to share those over the next few days.

Here are the links for:

George Washington Carver

A Weed Is A Flower by Aliki

I’m busy sorting through some older school stuff and I keep coming across things that just makes me a little sentimental. This is a page that Zippy narrated five years ago after we read the book A Weed is a Flower by Aliki, which by the way, is a really great little book. And the illustration is really neat too.

This is what it says:

“George Washington Carver was born a very tiny baby to some slaves. His daddy died and some thieves came and stole servants from their owners. One time, one came to the house where they lived and stole his mommy and him. The master sent someone to find George Washington Carver and his mommy. His mommy was never found, but he was.

“He grew up to be a famous man and he studied plants, and he helped the farmers with their crops so they could earn enough money.

“One time some special people came to the school where he worked. He made them a meal. The people were surprised to find out that everything was made of peanuts. He studied until he died.” June, 2009

Her writing has grown up since this. I mean she has grown up, but so did her writing. It makes me happy and sad all the same time.
