The Story of the World: History for the Classical Child, Volume 3: Early Modern Times: From Elizabeth the First to the Forty-Niners (Paperback Book/Activity Book Set)

"Explorers discover treasure beneath mountain rocks. Pirates roam the seas. Kings huddle on their thrones, hoping that they wil keep their crowns—and their heads. And adventurers sail around the world on tiny wooden ships, risking starvation and treacherous seas to find strange new lands." — Susan Wise Bauer, Author

VERY GOOD: Both the book and the activity book are in excellent condition.


This volume is recommended for study with children in Grades 3-6 and possibly up to Grade 8.

The book has 42 chapters that cover the major events from around the world, and the activity book has corresponding review questions, outlining activities, composition questions, suggestions for additional reading, map work, art projects (including the proper colors for various countries’ flags), geography projects, and other types of project suggestions.

Another handy feature of the activity book is a pronunciation guide for many of the foreign names. The text itself offers a timeline that can be used to help put the events in proper historical context.

The author also presents ideas on multi-level teaching that help homeschooling parents present the volume to their children who may be spread across in the grades.

Not meant solely for homeschoolers, the volume can be used in a classroom setting as well. Bauer offers suggestions on how to incorporate the material.
