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.
