The Mystery of History

The Mystery of History curriculum is always discounted at Schoolhouse Publishing!


Introducing The Mystery of History by Linda Lacour Hobar. To quote (and I concur) “Classical, chronological, complete - a user-friendly family curriculum. The Mystery of History provides a historically accurate, Bible-centered approach to learning ancient history. Written by a proponent of making the classical method easier to use. The research has already been done for you! Learn how God, since the beginning of time, has sought to reveal Himself to man. Plenty of worthwhile projects will occupy the younger set while older students are doing their completely planned lessons, making this a dream course for busy homeschoolers.” How refreshing to have a curriculum that is fun, academically and biblically sound, complete, and multi-level!  I used The Mystery of History with my 4th, 7th, 9th, and 11th graders. Together we did map studies and built a timeline, read some of Hobar’s literature suggestions, and went over the lessons and quizzes. Separately the boys did projects and creative writing using Hobar’s ideas. We have learned so much! Here’s what is included in The Mystery of History: detailed and lively text, lesson plans, a cumulative review system, historical photos, quizzes, semester and year-end tests, project and activity suggestions (some included, some you put together yourself), timeline and mapping assignments, teaching suggestions, answer keys, outline maps,  and supplemental reading and video lists. What more could you ask for in a history curriculum? Mystery of History 1 and Mystery of History 2 have included student activity pages, however, we offer a CD which you can print off activity sheets for each child with the ease of your computer and printer.  Mystery of History 3 is set up entirely differently.  The stories are in a hardcover, coffee-table style text book with beautiful color illustrations.  All the activities, tests, quizzes, lesson plans, mapping assignments, answer key, and so on, are in a separate consumable book OR you can purchase it on a CD where you can print off as many copies of each page as you want.  To compare Mystery of History with other programs, click here for a handy, printable chart.
